The IPMI widget on the Network screen displays the available IPMI channels.


The Identify Light button displays a dialog where users can select a duration for the system IPMI to flash so they can identify it.

The Manage button opens the IPMI manager in a new browser tab where users can log into the IPMI web interface.

Click in the IPMI channel to display the IPMI configuration screen.

IPMI requires compatible hardware! Refer to your hardware documentation to determine if the TrueNAS web interface has IPMI options.
