Dear all I have a FreeNAS setup where by default the fans of the NAS start at full speed every time my system start (long story).
I want to run the following commands every time the system boots:
Code:
ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 1 10
ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 0 10


I tried putting them in the init command section of my FreeNAS
FreeNAS-11.0-U3 (c5dcf4416) setup, but they won't be running then.

Anyone some advice? And if it turns I need to write a script please some pointers?

thanks in advance!

This ought to work... How did you configure the startup task?

I would write a simple shell script and insure it works. Something like this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
/usr/local/bin/ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 1 10
/usr/local/bin/ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 0 10

Then add this script as a Post Init startup task in FreeNAS. The Post Init specifier is important. See image for an example:

Good luck!

Thank you!
The "/usr/local/bin/" bit did the trick ;)
