Does Windows Embedded Standard 7 E (WS7E) install IPMI Drivers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using an ATOM supermicro server which comes with a watchdog feature.  I intend to use the watchdog feature to reset Windows if it hangs.  The watchdog uses IPMI to interact with the host.  In order to use the watchdog, I must reset the Watchdog timer using a a IPMI client such as IPMItool or IPMI util.  For some reasons, both don't work because the IPMI driver cannot be found.  Can anyne please tell me if Windows Embedded Standard 7 E (WS7E) installs IPMI Drivers?

  • You probably need to install the IPMI drivers yourself. 

    A quick check of my distribution share shows that the only thing that even remotely looks close is:

    ACPI Power Meter Driver "acpipmi"
