IPMIView for Mac

For a strange reason SuperMicro doesn't document this, but you can use the Linux version of IPMIView on Mac OS (it's just a Java app).

Download it here:
ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/utility/IPMIView/Linux/

After extracting the compressed file, open a terminal and make the 'IPMIView20' file executable
~/Downloads/IPMIView_V2.11.0_bundleJRE_Linux_20151223
$ chmod a+x IPMIView20
And then run it:
~/Downloads/IPMIView_V2.11.0_bundleJRE_Linux_20151223
$ ./IPMIView20
That should do it.

  1. According to Supermicro support in the Summer of 2016, IPMIView is not officially supported on the Mac.

    This is sad, because Macs are widely used by System Administrators. I no very few people who use Windows in the sysadmin/devops field, and even fewer Linux desktops.

  2. It looks like they updated the IPMIView to 2.12.0.

    Would i need to do the below now?

    Download it here:
    ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/utility/IPMIView/Linux/IPMIView_2.12.0_build.160804_bundleJRE_Linux_x64.tar.gz

    After extracting the compressed file, open a terminal and make the 'IPMIView20' file executable

    ~/Downloads/IPMIView_2.12.0_build.160804_bundleJRE_Linux_x64
    $ chmod a+x IPMIView20

    And then run it:
    ~/Downloads/IPMIView_2.12.0_build.160804_bundleJRE_Linux_x64
    $ ./IPMIView20

    That should do it.

    1. Thanks for the update. It looks like the Linux version is still the same tho. Are you running into any problems with it?

  4. The new version is 2.12. That's what I use. I don't use it much anymore now that I have the HTML5 version of the IPMI. But no, no problems with 2.12.

    2. So I was having issues with the latest available IPMI version that was out (1.11):
      https://www.supermicro.com/support/bios/firmware.aspx

      So I emailed Supermicro and then sent me a new BETA 1.34 version to try out. I was able to now use HTML5 with no problem (THAT WAS AWESOME) but it didn't fix my original issue (I was having connection issues going from one interface to another (iPhone to PC to IPMIView Software).

      So they sent me this file (1.28):
      https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0s9K22IVZUiUUF4TWJwUDV0U0E

      After I updated the firmware (PS.. need to use the IPMIView Software. I wasn't able to update using the web interface.), EVERYTHING worked wonderfully! No connection issues and I was able to fully use HTML5!

      Hope this all helps!
