BIOS Versions

Recommendation: After a BIOS update load the default settings of the BIOS, and adjust the configuration as suggested below at BIOS Configuration.

Das BIOS Update erfolgt beim RI2212+ über die EFI-Shell. Je nach BIOS-Version gibt es entweder ein komplettes File (startup.nsh) oder einzelne Files, die für das BIOS Update erforderlich sind. Das startup.nsh File führt automatisch alle Updates nacheinander durch. Die einzelne Files müssen manuell nacheinander ausgeführt werden. Eine Anleitungen in welcher Reihenfolge die einzelnen Files ausgeführt werden müssen, finden Sie in der dazugehörigen Readme Textdatei der entsprechenden BIOS Versionen.

  • Version 1.08.0003
    • The quality assurance update version release date: 07/01/2013.

BIOS Settings

At Thomas Krenn, after loading the default settings the following BIOS configuration adjustments are applied before a server with this motherboard gets its test installation and gets shipped:

  Main > Quiet Boot > Disabled


IPMI Versions

  • An IPMI 2.0 is integrated on the Motherboards's BMC. This allows you the reading tools for the readouts from IMPI information: (e.g. IMPIView), temperature, fan and motherboard information. You can also turn the server on and off or even reset it.
  • To reliably manage the server remotely, you need a RMM4 Module. This is installed on the motherboard and provides the following features:
    • KVM access and media integration through "Virtual Media Redirection".
    • Additional dedicated NIC for remote access.
    • Management via Web interface.
