to save others from some headache when using multi-version JAVA installations on same system, could please include this as ipmiview in /usr/bin:


export PATH="/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/:${PATH}"
exec /opt/ipmiview/IPMIView20 "$@"

Simply linking /opt/ipmiview/IPMIView20 barfs in multi-version JAVA installations with "no JRE found" messages.

If you encounter problems with the software, please report it to the developers (like I did), so those problems can be fixed.

@edacval I have explored that a bit. It apparently depends on a client type. See here: I do not want to rollback bmc fw anymore, because I am tired of that. But if somebody ask, I could probably make additional tests. I got that "Connection failed" message when trying to kvm into X11SSH-F with 3.55 bmc fw. But when trying to kvm into X9DRW-7TPF mb it works fine (opens ikvm viewer window). Well, kinda. For some reason colors are messed there. But launching jnlp file from X9DRW-7TPF downloaded from web interface has no color issue. So probably parsing session ID and launching apropriate jar file is better solution than running this really shit quality software.

Notes: For X11 it is available html5 viewer (could be launched via redfish also). But it lacks feature of mounting local iso file (again, I do not want to mess with samba shares). SMCIPMItool could be used for that (iso mounting) and also iKVM viewer could be launched with it. SMCIPMItool opened ikvm window normally on X11 3.55 fw, but Authentication failed on X11 3.56 fw. I did not reported that to supermicro, because I hope they better spend their time for implementing javaless virtual media.

Is it currently possible to use Launch KVM Console function in 2.16.0-2 version? I can log in at Login tab, but when going to KVM Console tab and pressing the button to Launch KVM Console I got the message window "Authentication failed".

Ah, nevermind. They're not changing the file w/o updating the version... they were increasing the build number. And their web server still returns something when you request the wrong file.

Fixed, sorry about that! :)

This is weird, the checksum changes every time I download it. :/
