[Openstack] [Baremetal] Hardware enrollment need help please

Hi Ryota,

Thanks for the reply. I figured this out about 30 mins ago. Didn't know the web GUI user account was the same for the IPMI authentication.

After enrolling the hardware in Openstack finally, when I try to deploy I get an error, which I cant find in the logs. My guess is Openstack server cannot communicate with the hardware.
Booting the hardware from PXE also cannot find the openstack server to get an ip from.

One step at a time eh? haha

Hi Jake,

You can find the default user account and password to access BMC through IPMI in " EXPRESSSCOPE Engine 2  User's Guide p.8".


It could be wrong in the version of BMC on your server or if you used some configuration tool to build. So I suggest you to login to BMC Web console and configure user account and password.

Note: You can check pm_{address,user,password} by running ipmitool in your env as follows:
   # echo '<pm_password>' > pw
   # ipmitool -H <pm_address> -U <pm_user> -I lanplus -f pw power status
