While ipmitool or ipmiutil commands are running, the system is unable to identify the file and the driver; therefore reports an error:
[root@mdw ~]# ipmitool sdr type Memory Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory Get Device ID command failed Unable to open SDR for reading
1: Load the driver
[root@mdw ~] modprobe ipmi_devintf
2: Check if the driver is loaded
[root@smdw ~]# lsmod | grep -i ipmi
ipmi_devintf 7729 2
3: Execute ipmiutil or ipmitool command to verify if they execute successfully
4 [Optional]: If ipmitool or ipmiutil still does not work after loading the drivers, try restarting ipmi server using:
[root@smdw ~]# service ipmi restart
Stopping all ipmi drivers: may be in use [FAILED]
Starting ipmi drivers: [ OK ]
5: Restart dial home services to ensure that all the dial home alerts are sent to SYR.
