I’ve bought an used X99 WS / IPMI MB. It seems to work fine.
After an initial struggle on restoring the IPMI/iKVM password I’ve managed to login.
Then I’ve discovered somethign I’ve never seen on my DELL servers with iDRAC: FRU Information
After some research I’ve got that there is a i2c bus with eeproms that can push infos to the IPMI interface. Looks like that I’ve bought a MB that was part of a Ciara Technologies Server.
It have the Chassis Serial No and the Server Model and more baked on it.
I’ve already tried to reflash the BMC firmware and I’ve tried to restore it to default but thoose info are still there. On the Mb there are only two SPI Rom: The bios one and the one for the BMC.
Is there any way to clear/edit thoose parameters? I’m mostly using the iKVM interface to have remote console access. So this is mostly for my curiosity.
