For me it is so often that I may forget an even simple password that I set in just less an hour ago because we are on the web have so many passwords in our minds such as emails, servers, personal computer login and the rest
losing the IPMI password is the worst thing when it is really essential for repairing the damage made to your Operating System or some other rescue operations you may want to achieve
but don’t worry. there is still a way to reset the ipmi password that I will instruct you bellow:

cd IPMICFG-Linux_v1.41_110706/
chmod 755  *
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64.static -fd

after this process the IPMI Login Information must be


If in the above commands you got the following errors :
the ip was not responding with The connection has timed out

 [kcs] kcs_error_exit:

 [kcs] kcs_error_exit:

 [kcs] kcs_error_exit:
No IPMI BMC Found!
Failed to reset the BMC to the factory

run these

./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -dhcp off
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -k NET_MASK
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -m IPMI_IP

that the NET_MASK is the netmask of your ip range and the IPMI_IP is the ip address you have configured o use the ipmi password
after that run this again to make your impi access credentionals reset to the factore default settings

./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64.static -fd
