IPMI works out of the box. I’m using FreeIPMI to test this (not ipmitool) since FreeIPMI is a lot easier to use.
You need to know that:
- The default user name is

- You have to use the dedicated management interface, marked “f” in the software reference guide (the ethernet port above the two USB sockets).
Here are the sensors:
