How to reset Intel RMM (Remote Management Module)

Once the server has been assembled and all of its components have had their firmware updated (Intel Download Site) we configure our RMM via the server board’s BIOS.

  1. Turn the server on and F2 into the BIOS.
  2. Server Management Tab.
  3. BMC LAN Configuration
  4. Set the IP for the RMM
    1. In the shop we leave it DHCP so that we can remote into the server while here.
    2. Client’s site we tend to plug directly into the Internet and give it a static IP.
  5. Set the BMC DHCP Host Name
    1. Convention is a bit goofy (no special characters).

  8. F10 to save settings and reboot the server.

If using DHCP then check the network’s DHCP Server console for the IP that the RMM has picked up.

Open a browser and navigate to the RMM IP.
