Get started with the MIMIC IPMI Simulator

MIMIC IPMI Simulator is an optional MIMIC protocol module that allows to simulate large environments of IPMI-manageable servers, etc.

It can be enabled after the base MIMIC installation as below.

    Enable IPMI in MIMIC

  1. At this point you should have MIMIC installed, and the MIMICview GUI running (see details) . If you don't have MIMICview running, please consult your license e-mail to get it installed and running.

  2. Check whether you already have IPMI enabled in MIMIC as shown in the Help -> About Mimic... dialog in MIMICview. It should be listed under Loaded protocols. If already there, then skip to step 7.

  3. Run Protocol Wizard using the Wizards -> Protocol Wizard menu in MIMICView (see details)

  4. Select IPMI Simulator in the Select Protocols dialog if not already selected. Press Next.

  5. Supply corresponding license keys from the license email in the Supply License Keys dialog. Then press Next.

  6. The Result Installing/Uninstalling Protocols dialog shows what got done. Press Finish to proceed. When the simulator restarts, you should have IPMI enabled.

    Download optional sample IPMI packages

  7. At this point, you should have IPMI enabled in MIMIC as shown in the Help -> About Mimic... dialog in MIMICview. It should be listed under Loaded protocols. If not, send us the MIMIC log. (see details)

  8. Invoke the MIMICview Wizard -> Update menu to download and install IPMI packages (see details)

  9. Check under the section Collections for IPMI Packages. If not there, then it is already installed. Else, select it, and press Next to install.

    Firewall permission for , port 80 is needed to run the Update Wizard over the web.

    Please visit this link for alternative MIMIC update instructions in case you don't have Internet to use the Update Wizard over the web connection on the MIMIC system:

    where xxxx is current MIMIC version e.g. for 20.10 it is 2010

    Configure a server

  10. After the installation is complete, follow the directions of the IPMI DELL PowerEdge710 Server Simulation package documentation to load the lab configuration poweredge710_ipmi.cfg using the MIMICview File -> Open menu. (see details)

  11. After you start the server with Agent -> Start then it starts the IPMI service, allowing you to interact with it as documented in that package documentation .


  12. This video shows how to use IPMI Wizard to change values in a simulation in real-time.

  13. Please invoke Help -> Contents menu and refer to section Optional Protocol Modules -> MIMIC IPMI Protocol Module Guide for full details, or access it here.
