Setting up Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)


Setup a static IP for the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) port on Remote Office Appliance RO1200. IPMI is needed to setup the Remote Office Appliance RO1200. In addition, this will also ensure that the IPMI is accessible in the network using the static IP. For example, it would be useful to power-on or power-off the appliance using the IPMI console.
