Accessing the iBMC CLI

Accessing the iBMC CLI

This section describes how to access the iBMC CLI.

Login Modes

You can log in to the iBMC CLI using any of the following methods:

  • SSH

    Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers. A maximum of five users can access the iBMC CLI over SSH at the same time.


SSH supports AES128-CTR, AES192-CTR, and AES256-CTR encryption algorithms. Use an appropriate encryption algorithm when accessing the iBMC over SSH.

  • Local serial port
  • The default user of a V3 server is root, and the default user of a V5 server is Administrator. The default password can be found on the nameplate of each server.
  • The system locks a user account if the user enters incorrect passwords for consecutive five times. The user account is automatically unlocked five minutes later. The administrator can also unlock the user account using the command line.
  • For security purposes, change the initial password after the first login and change your password periodically.
  • The default operation timeout period on the CLI is 15 minutes.


  • To open the CLI over the network port, you must connect the network interface of the configuration terminal to the network interface of the server by using a network cable, and ensure that the IP addresses of the two network interfaces are on the same network segment.
  • Before accessing the iBMC CLI through the serial port, use the serial port the serial port of the configuration terminal to the serial port of the server by using a serial cable.

The rack server provides the adaptive management network interface of 1000 Mbit/s on the rear panel of the chassis. You can connect the network interface by using a network cable

Accessing iBMC CLI Over SSH

  1. Download an SSH communication tool on the local PC.
  2. Connect the local PC to the server management network port directly or over the network.
  3. Configure an IP address for the local PC to enable communication between the local PC and the iBMC management network port.
  4. On the local PC, use the SSH tool to connect to the iBMC.
  5. Enter the user name and password to access the iBMC.
  • Both local and LDAP users can access the iBMC CLI over SSH. The LDAP user can access the iBMC CLI without entering the domain server information.
  • Before logging in to the iBMC CLI as an LDAP user, ensure that the connection between the iBMC and the LDAP server is normal.

Accessing iBMC CLI Over the Serial Port


Before accessing the iBMC CLI over the serial port, ensure that the system serial port of the chassis is switched to the iBMC serial port. You can switch over the serial port by using the serialdir command on the CLI or using a jumper (see the user guide of the server).

  1. Connect the local PC and the server using a serial cable.
  2. Open HyperTerminal and set the following parameters:

    • Bits per second: 115200
    • Data bits: 8
    • Parity: None
    • Stop bits: 1
    • Flow control: None

    For details on how to set the parameters, see Figure A-14.

  3. Click Apply.
  4. Enter the user name and password to access the CLI.
