So I am not sure what the IMPI port on this http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Atom/X10/A1SRi-2758F.cfm is used for but I have 2 of these boards and I was wondering if i could use that port to do carp redundancy?
Or im not really sure wth an IMPI dedicated lan is….........
Instead of me writing text watch this and you will understand it much better
it is very cool stuff though
you can even remote in to the BIOS
That port is dedicated to the IPMI controller; you can't use it in your OS. Some boards have shared ports.
The BMC offering IPMI is a Linux computer bonding its dedicated interface and the first mainboard interface, using the mainboard interface as failover. You should generally configure it to only use the dedicated interface on a firewall.
And no, you can't use it for CARP.
