Hi All, We've tried installing the bmc-watchdog utility in IBMx343 running FreeBSD. We've found out that it can interact with the built-in management processor. When the timer was set to 1 minute using bmc-watchdog -s command, the system restarted after the specified time. But this setting did not change the OS watchdog timer that was pre-configured using the BIOS utility. How are these two differ from each other?
I've learned some known issues on using bmc-watchdog as specified in the following: http://www.gnu.org/software/freeipmi/manpages/man8/bmc-watchdog.8.html Setting the watchdog timer on the user space is incomparable with an independent hardware watchdog (is this the case of the built-in management processor on the IBM x343 box?). Hope to receive some lights from all. Thanks, Won
