Re: [Freeipmi-users] Remotely change a user password without a timeout

The IPMI specification mandates that sessions time out after 60 seconds if
no RMCP UDP packets are not received by the server. Most of the IPMI
libraries and tools send a Get Device ID or some other IPMI command to keep
the sessions alive.
Hemi does it this way.

Changing a password should take less than 5 seconds so it's likely there is
some other problem. Is it possible the RMCP session you are using does not
have or has not elevated is permission to the IPMI level of administrator ?

Most vendors implement either a web or Command line interface to change
account names or passwords.
