I've adopted an IBM Blade Center and we don't know the IP address of the mgmt module. We do know it isn't the default. How do we console into that mm and manage it if you don't know the IP address?

Hi Matthew,

To reset the IP address back to default, press and hold the IP reset button on the MM for 3 seconds or less.

If you want to reset back to factory default, press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, release and wait 5 seconds, then press and hold for another 10. You should then be able to get in using the default IP address and "USERID" & "PASSW0RD" (all uppercase)

After using the reset method above, the default IP addresses for each device should be:

MM (ETH0, outside)

MM (ETH1, inside)

Bay 1

Bay 2

Bay 3

Bay 4
