BMC not accessible


I have 2 FAS2040 in HA mode. On both of them I used to be able to connect to the BMC. Today one of the two wont let me login. It does not even prompt for a user/password. it only says : server unexpectedly closed network connection. I can ping the IP address though. And if I log in to the FAS2040 and type bmc status I get this :

crpar1b> bmc status

Any idea on what could be happening here ?


Re: BMC not accessible

In case it might help someone, I just did a "bmc reboot" and it is working again.

This operation does not do any harm ! our CIFS shares were still accessible during the reboot in case you're wondering
