IPMITOOL – Get Session Challenge command failed: Invalid data field in request
Today morning I had strange issue while I was trying to wipeout old Nutanix POC box with running Microsoft Hyper-V 2012R2.
I went through the Foundation logs and I have found odd error
Get Session Challenge command failed
I thought it could be some issues with credentials, but same credentials worked fine with WebUI. Last instance was command line tools, fortunately IPMI has its own toolset called ipmitool.
[nutanix@nutanix-installer ~]$ ipmitool -H 10.0.0.128 -U ADMIN
Get Session Challenge command failed: Invalid data field in request
Error: Unable to establish LAN session
Restore IPMI settings to Factory default solved problem. I was able to finish foundation process and since customer is running Nutanix AHV instead of Microsoft Hyper-V.
- Log in to IPMI via WebUI
- Click Maintenance
- Factory default
