Resetting Supermicor IPMI system

In case the IPMI system on a Supermicro system is unresponsive, but you are still able to log into the main server, you can issue the following command(s) to reset the IPMI:

# load the necessary modules (optional)
sudo modprobe ipmi_si
sudo modprobe ipmi_devintf
# reset the IPMI
sudo ipmitool mc reset cold
# remove all the modules
sudo rmmod ipmi_devintf
sudo rmmod ipmi_si
