Never used IPMI before. My case will be away from my desk and therefore the power on and reset buttons not within reach. I understand that I can power on and reset the system from IPMI. My thinking is if the system is on the network and I config the IP for the IPMI inside the BIOS while connecting a raspberry pi into my switch, I should be able to enter the IPMI IP address into the browser of the raspberry pi and able to use all the functions of IPMI on the motherboard… including hardware monitoring.
Is it really that simple? I have a separate wireless keyboard so a KVM solution is not necessary.
