BMC supports the IPMI command “Set User Password”. So when forgetting user name or password,
you can use IPMI command to get the username and reset the user password under DOS or Linux.
Example,
There is a default user “admin” as the picture below:
Under DOS:
Get the user name:
Ipmitool 20 18 46 2 (the value “2” is the User ID)
Set user password:
Ipmitool 20 18 47 02 02 + password. (Password is ASCI value: 16 bytes)
Under Linux shell:
Get the user name:
Ipmitool raw 0x6 0x46 0x02. (the value “2” is the User ID)
