The following are steps on how to set up IPMI watchdog capabilities on relatively old RHEL6 (also CentOS 6) systems. Hopefully Mikrotik could relatively easily incorporate this:
Code: Select all
yum -y install watchdog; pico /etc/watchdog.conf; watchdog-device = /dev/watchdog interval = 25 realtime = yes priority = 1 chkconfig --level 3 watchdog off; # Yes, off yum -y install ipmitool; #deps: OpenIPMI OpenIPMI-libs modinfo ipmi_watchdog; # Details available options pico /etc/sysconfig/ipmi; IPMI_WATCHDOG=yes IPMI_WATCHDOG_OPTIONS="timeout=60 start_now=1 preop=preop_give_data actio n=power_cycle pretimeout=1" chkconfig --level 3 ipmi off; # Yes, off pico /etc/rc.d/rc.local; # Start the IPMI reset timer and watchdog service ipmi start; service watchdog start;
