Q. I am using the IPMI probe to probe an Intel Xserve. The probe reports the server as down, but I can ping the server's IP address.

A. The IPMI probe requires that you use the IP address associated with the Xserve's LOM (Lights-Out Management) port to probe the server. This is not same as the IP address assigned to the server for managing and service access. Note that LOM uses a separate administrator username and password, and these are the credentials you must supply with the probe.
