BMC drops off the network

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
One really annoying thing I've noticed about my Dell C1100 is that the BMC seems to time out around 30 seconds after plugging in the network cable. If I don't connect to it some way or other (web browser, Supermicro IPMIview), it then becomes inaccessible until I disconnect and reconnect the network cable - the router shows it as an inactive device with no IP address.

Is there a problem with my router? Or is there some setting in the BIOS I need to configure? Or is this simply the norm?

Is your BMC set for DHCP or static? If DHCP, set a static IP and see if your problem goes away.
