Access IPMI from api

Post by nishanth9042 » 2018/07/28 18:36:07

Hello All,

In one of my friends office , they have configured IPMI for servers and they can access only from few specific servers. So if they want to access IPMI of the servers they need to ssh to those servers and do the stuff and log out of ssh session.

I want to know if I can access IPMI without doing ssh to those servers. Can some one please guide me on how to build API for accessing ipmi through url.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't done something with IPMI lately. But as fas as I can remember you just need to configure its dedicated management LAN Port and browse onto it.

Thanks for the reply fdisk , we are able to access from the server and browser by forwarding ports but managing multiple hosts through browser is difficult for us and hence is the need for api.

IPMI can be used locally or remotely. When it comes to multiple servers you may want to combine it with an orchestration tool like ansible.
