IPMI Setup

To prevent Contractor from DHCPing your other systems, you will want to create a private network to build contractor’s targets in. This demo assumes it will be For our example name it “internal”, if you choose to name it something else, make sure that change is reflected in the name of the address block that will be created later.

After you create the network/port group, add a second interface to the contractor VM on this new network, and assign the ip to that interface.

In the /etc/subcontractor.conf file under the dhcpd section, set the listen_interface to the name of the newly created interface.

Now you will need to install ipmitool:

sudo apt install -y ipmitool
