Got an HP server to play with, a Proliant ML 150 G6 (what’s the deal with HP’s wacko URLs?); not too expensive, and is big with really loud fans.

When setting up IPMI the man advises you to “use Telnet to log in to the remote management CLP” – I haven’t used telnet in sometime, I had to try.

Bless my, for I have sinned. They even have an SSH daemon running by default… why on earth would they suggest telnet?

Ah well, time to SMASH.
