Hi Guys,

Ive been trying to reimage a block of mine but it keeps failing.

from the foundation logs , it keep showing this message. im able to access to IPMI directly using the ip address.

Are you able to reach IPMI IP from Foundation VM ?

Yes, I'm able to ping and also reach the Web of ipmi from the foundation itself

In that case, I would suggest to restart the foundation and see if it works.
Try placing foundation VM in the same layer 2 network where you IPMI is connected in case it is not.
Make sure port IPMI command port 623, IKVM port 5900, 80 and 443 are accessible.

Ive manage to Reimage the nodes.

This slightly older box of mine with IPMI Firmware 1.87 does not communicate with Foundation 2.1.
After upgrading to 3.4 i was able to communicate with Foundation 2.1.
