Purpose: Provide remote management for our physical IBM machines
+
 
+
== Restarting the RSA II card ==
+
 
+
Normally, the RSA II can be restarted from the web/ssh interface.  If you are locked out of any outside access to the RSA II, follow these instructions on the physical machine.
+
 
+
If the machine can be rebooted without issue, cut off all power to the machine, wait a few seconds, and restart everything.
+
 
+
Otherwise, to restart the card without rebooting the machine:
+
 
+
# Download and install the IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter II Daemon
+
## yum install usbutils libusb-devel # (needed by the RSA II daemon)
+
## Download the correct tarball from http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5071676&brandind=5000008 (TODO: check if this can be packaged in Fedora)
+
## Extract the tarball and run
+
 
+
<pre> sudo ./install.sh --update </pre>
+
# Download and extract the IBM Advanced Settings Utility (http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=TOOL-ASU&brandind=5000016, warning: this tarball dumps files in the current working directory)
+
# Issue a <pre> sudo ./asu64 rebootrsa</pre> to reboot the RSA II.
+
# Clean up: yum remove ibmusbasm64
+
