Hello,

According to the results, your device uses IPMI v2, however our sensor only supports IPMI v1. This is the reason why you are not able to add the sensor. We are looking at updating the sensor to support IPMI v2 as well, however we do not yet have a ETA for this.

Hello Thanks for the response, do you have any alternative solution ? As we have to get IPMI sensor details for 150 servers, any alternative would be highly appreciated.

Unfortunately, we do not have a workaround for this. Perhaps you can create a script that will retrieve the needed data. In this case you could run the script using our Exe/Script Advanced sensor.

Unfortunately, we do not have a script for monitoring IPMI v2.
