How to reset password on Remote Access Card


Recommended Posts



I have recently installed a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card in my N40L which I purchased second hand off eBay


Unfortunately after installation I can't access the card as the default id and password are not being accepted.


I gather I can reset the password by reinstalling the firmware, but I can't find any step by step instructions on how to do this.


I have also seen a comment on a manual site that 'You can use the IPMI tool via KCS to reset the administrator password to "password." 
Use the following Linux ipmitool command: 

ipmitool raw 18 47 82 2 0x70 0x61 0x73 0x73 0x77 0x6f 0x72 0x64 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00


Again, I have found a site with an ipmitool to download, but I am not sure what KCS refers to.


Can anybody help me get clarity on what I need to do.


My N40L is currently installed with FreeNAS 11.2-RC2
