ipmitool >Could not open device


Hello,

I have problem to get ipmitool works.

On the internet I found some tips, but nothing helped.

Any idea how to fix it please?

So you want to access the local machine itself – right?
You know it has IPMI support?
You installed the OpenIPMI drivers?
You started IPMI (i.e. something like /etc/init.d/ipmi start which should create the device nodes)?
You are doing it as root so has access to the device nodes?

Thanks for your reply, the problem was, that it has no IPMI.
ATI RS690 is an desktop chipset.

IPMI is often found on server boards, which sometimes even allow remote KVM to operate the server headless in the server room while still having full access to keyboard and video (some allow also the usage of a remote floppy/CD/USB devices).

For some ASUS boards this can be added later on: iKVM.

Itís an embedded processor running e.g. its own Linux as soon as power is plugged in, so that the main power (and so the machine) can be switched on and off via network. This is independent from the used chipset.

This was my solution:

apt-get install lm-sensors
sensors-detect
sensors

and for HDD's control
tw-cli
