Repost: Everything You Should Know About Supermicro IPMI

I have a few tips to ensure your Supermicro IPMI configurations are easy to manage and deal with,

  1. When possible have the IPMI Web Interface on a private network (not facing the internet).
  2. Always patch IPMI to the latest firmware release.
  3. Always patch the underlying motherboard BIOS to the latest release.
  4. Always disable the default user account and any guest / anonymous user accounts
  5. Create a custom admin login that is not the default “ADMIN”.
  6. Document and know how to use the varying Supermicro IPMI cmd line utilities, just in case!
