Re: virtual machine

Do you get the same result if you try this again?

Hope this helps!

Re: virtual machine

Hi Navin,

One of the ioctl commands to send IPMI messages to the BMC is IOCTL_IMB_SEND_MESSAGE. It allows a 64-bit user process to send a message to the BMC. See for more information. It might have failed because the caller is unable to access the BMC because too many processes are contending for access.
