How to reset a Supermicro IPMICFG password from inside Windows

You may encounter a situation where you need to reset the admin password associated with your Supermicro IPMI interface.

In my circumstance I had just picked up a 6028TR-HTFR off of eBay for a good deal and all four nodes had unknown passwords.

This method will require physical access to the server and this How To will cover how to accomplish the reset leveraging a Windows OS.

At the bottom of this article I have linked to additional reading which contains methods for Linux as well as resetting via USB boot.

Steps to reset a Supermicro IPMICFG password – Windows method:

  1. Download the latest IPMICFG utility released by Supermicro
  2. Copy the extracted contents to your server
  3. Open a command window as administrator (this will not work from a normal command window)
  4. Change directory to the ipmicfg-win.exe appropriate for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit)
  5. Get the user ID of the IPMI user whose password you want to set:
    ipmicfg-win.exe -user list
  6. Set a new password for that user:
    ipmicfg-win.exe -user setpwd 2 your_password_here
  7. Login to the IPMI web GUI using the password you just set.

Full example of  how to reset a Supermicro IPMICFG password:

*I only have one note on this and that is that the ADMIN username is case sensitive in my experience.
