Greetings to all,

After an update of the AOS from 5.8.2 to 5.10.5, the following alerts began to be received:

IPMI sensor mismatch
IPMI sensor data unavailable on host



This is in a cluster with 3 Lenovo HX host, and all hosts have the same configuration when the cluster was created with the Foundations, I have already reviewed the access to the network to the BMC port and all the IPs respond and the users and passwords with correct.

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.5/com.vmware.vsphere.resmgmt.doc/GUID-D247EC2C-92C5-4B9B-9305-39099F30D3B5.html

This cluster uses the ESXi 6.5 hypervisor with vCenter 6.5, the information in the ESXi on the IPMI has already been added. The 3 CVM's respond to the ping between them and the BMC ports.

Is there any parameter within the CVM that should be reviewed or from the PRISM console?

Hi @oscarascoli

Can you login on ESXi, run the following command and check the IP address reported by the IPMI (in your case Lenovo XCC):

/ipmitool lan print

After that, login to any CVM, run the following command and check if the IPMI address for that host reported by ipmitool command is the same of IP reported by the ncli command.

$ ncli host list
