I've used ipmitool pretty extensively on Linux and OS X to manage
Supermicro servers. I haven't tried it on OI but I imagine it would
work the same.
Try something like this to open a virtual console:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H <hostname> -U<username> sol activate
If you're doing this through an SSH session, you'll want to use the -e
option to change the default escape character to something other than
~, otherwise you'll have trouble exiting the session.
You can get GRUB to talk to a serial port by using something like the
following in your menu.lst (or grub.conf) file:
serial --unit=1 --speed=19200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=5 serial console
For this to work right you should set "Continue console redirection
after OS loads" to OFF. Obviously you'll need to adjust the baud rate
and unit number to suit what speed and port you're using.
I haven't tried to configure OI for a serial console yet, so I can't
help you with that, but this should help get you started.
