Help needed in setting up M3291 SMDC in S2927 Motherboard

Discussion in 'Tyan' started by Raffaele Biscosi, May 16, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    has anybody these two products working together? I have some problems with

    a) I cannot find any firmware for M3291 with S2927 support any more. There
    was one some time ago on tyan's ftp-Server but it is not there any more
    b) When I switch on the system remotely it is on for about 2 seconds and
    then it powers down. After this I have to press power button twice in order
    to reboot the system
    c) IPMI over LAN very unreliable. Sometimes I have to power down the system
    before I get any connection

    Any hints to solve this problem? Tyan asked to try a different power supply
    and to remove all but 1 cpu and 1 ram-module. I did it but still the same

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Actually it worked for me using the TYAN's M3291 Firmware package instructions :

    - Change JP1/JP3 jumpers on the mobo in position 3-2 (there is an error in the user guide)
    - Flash the TYAN's motherboard BIOS with the latest one
    - Disable "PMU" in BIOS
    - Flash the NVidia's NIC EEPROM and disconnect power cord several seconds
    - Flash the BMC Firmware with the one for S2927

    - Boot up Linux and configure the BMC with ipmitool (MAC/IP different from the NIC)
    - ipmitool mc reset cold

    You're up to go
