Change Boot Order Remotely

view full story

http://serverfault.com – Using Windows Share, I was able to connect media in order to do an OS reload using IPMI. However, I also need to change the boot order of the server. My issue is that I cannot seem to get to the BIOS in time using the IPMI. By the time the KVM in the IPMI comes back online, the server is past the Supermicro screen. Can someone suggest how I can access the boot order screen of my server even though the IPMI KVM feature doesn't appear to allow me access that early on in the server's POST sequence? (HowTos)
