Supermicro SYS-5018A-FTN4 optimal BIOS settings



  • I've searched the forum and came up empty.
    Anyone with the same system have any opinions on this?

    Thanks in advance!



  • This Supermicro Superserver is based on an Intel Atom C2758 board.
    Often some default or optimal setting should be changed.

    • The IPMI Port is often configured to be the spare WAN Port if the real WAN port is failing, this should be turned off
    • The IPMI Port should be get a static IP address to get connect from outside.
    • The bypass mode of the Intel i354 LAN Ports should be also set off!

    What else you want to know about this boards BIOS settings?
    There is in normal no issue with and all should be fine?
    Did you got errors?

    Where do you see these settings in the bios? I don't see any of these in my board's bios settings.
