How to disable the IPMI port to use other ports


In this recipe you will learn to change the IPMI port LAN interface setting to Dedicate to prevent the IPMI port from sending a DHCP request in FortiManager/FortiAnalyzer.

  1. Set up a DHCP server if it does not currently exist in the Network.
  2. Connect a RJ-45 cable into the IPMI port.
  3. Open the new assigned IP address through a web browser. The default username and password is ADMIN/ADMIN.
  4. Go to Configuration > Network > LAN Interface, and change the setting from Failover to Dedicate.
  5. Use the IPMI View to discover the newly assigned IP address if there are several other devices in the same Network.
