    how Super Doctor III work ?

    Hi,

    i order a server with the board X9SCM-F,

    and i want to use his reboot IPMI feature to manage the server,

    i check supermicro's website,there is a software Super Doctor III,

    but i still do not understand how to use it well.


    does i install it on a server,after installing and login it to add the ip and login info of my X9SCM-F's IPMI ?or how to use it manage it ?

    You don't neet Supero-Doctor.
    On the server's BIOS, you need to configure an IP address for the IPMI (or also inside Windows or Linux with their IPMITool app, on the same place you find SuperoDoctor. Your dedicated IPMI NIC must be connected or then configured to share the port (but still having a dedicated IP) with eth0 (NIC 1).
    Then you just HTTP in to that IP address.

    Hi,

    what are the difference between "configured to share the port (but still having a dedicated IP) with eth0 (NIC 1)" and connect the IPMI port to another switch with dedicated or private ip ?


    thanx

    Super Doctor III is some useless software you can install in windows if you like pretty dials and buttons showing you inaccurate temperature and fan rpm gauges.

    IPMI actually lets you remotely manage your server.

    Not even close to related to each other.

  6. "super doctor", basically a piece of windows-only software for hardware (temp/voltage/fan speed) health monitoring, and it is really nothing to do with IPMI which offers full-arrange of hardware based remote management tasks, including health monitoring. actually, "super doctor" can be installed in windows based server without IPMI hardware at all.

    so,"super doctor" has no relationship with IPMI at all,people can install on a supermicro/windows server and monitor this server's health,and people can i stall IPMIView on pc to connect server's IPMI to remote monitor and control the server,correct ? thanx
