I started installation of HP helion community edition on 7 physical servers, teh script hp_ced_installer.sh from seed fails at ipmi validation of the servers 4 servers out of 8. We have the same BIOS settings for all the servers.

my hardware configuration is as below:

4 identical SuperMicro 6026TT-HTRF servers with cpu's: 16, Memory 42GB,Heard disk 1TB,2 NICs

4 identical Dell servers with cpu's: 12, Memory 32GB, Heard disk 950GB, 2NIC

below is the terminal output.

My guess would be either:

a) IPMI login details for the four Dell boxes are somehow incorrect, or: b) They're not making the full 32GB available - ie, 32752mb isn't "valid". In the days of share video memory, for example, you'd lose the top (say) 128MB so the actual reported memory value would be less.

Firstly thanks for your reply. I tried by giving the memory value less then the available -i.e., 30000mb, still i see the same issue.

What model of Dell servers do you have?

I'm betting there's a discrepancy between what Helion is expecting ipmitool to return and what the Dells are returning. The fact that it's validating power status suggest it is connecting successfully to ipmi, which is definitely a good start. :)
