Dear community

I want to install three G5 nodes with the foundation vm 5.0.4 and it fails at the beginning with the error

"Failed to connect to the following IPMIs:"

Let me describe my setup and my troubleshooting

  • Nodes are  X10DRT-P-G5-NI22
  • Set IP for the IPMI on each node and also set the ntp servers on each node
  • Trying to image the AHV
  • Foundation vm is version 5.04
  • All nodes, DNS server and the Foundation VM are in the same subnet
  • I can ping from the foundation to the IPMI
  • I can also send IPMI cmd to the nodes and getting results

=> so used username and passwd are correct and nothing is blocking the traffic

  • The Foundation fails with error "Failed to connect to the following IPMIs"
  • Following error appears very often in the logfile

@Ferdy I would recommend that you open a support ticket and work with a SRE on this.  There are just two many questions/options to examine via this media.
