IPMI requires compatible hardware! Refer to your hardware documentation to determine if this option displays in the TrueNAS web interface.

Many TrueNAS Storage Arrays provide a built-in out-of-band management port you can use to provide side-band management should the system become unavailable through the web interface. This allows for a few vital functions, such as checking the log, accessing the BIOS setup, and powering on the system without requiring physical access to the system. You can also use it to allow another person remote access to the system to assist with a configuration or troubleshooting issue.

Some IPMI implementations require updates to work with newer versions of Java. See PSA: Java 8 Update 131 breaks ASRock’s IPMI Virtual console for more information.

IPMI is configured from Network > IPMI. The IPMI configuration screen provides a shortcut to the most basic IPMI configuration.


IPMI Configuration

Use the Network > IPMI screen to configure IPMI settings. See IPMI Screen for more information on IPMI settings.

Use SAVE to save the IPMI settings.

Connecting to the IPMI

After saving the configuration, access the IPMI interface using a web browser and the IP address specified in Network > IPMI. The management interface prompts for login credentials. Refer to your IPMI device documentation to learn the default administrator account credentials.

After logging in to the management interface, you can change the default administrative user name and create additional IPMI users. The appearance of the IPMI utility and the functions that are available vary by hardware.
