Use Intel QuickSync with ffmpeg to have hardware accelerated video decoding and encoding – CentOS 7.4.1708

This howto shows how you can use ffmpeg to hardware accelerate the video decoding and encoding if you have the proper Intel processor. Some of the Intel processors have GPU unit in them, which can be used to decode and encode video streams and it is pretty fast! High end Intel CPU could encode around 20 h264 (using faster preset) video streams on a single processor mini server as SUPERMICRO system using X11SSV-M4F.
Here are the steps how to enable the hardware options and what and how to install the software to hardware encode a video stream successful under linux – CentOS 7 distro.

For the first four steps just follow the howto “Install Intel Media Studio SDK and GPU driver from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 – CentOS 7 (7.4.1708)” Here we include only the headers of the steps, because they are important part of this howto.
Installing Media Server Studio your system will get validated stack of software by Intel to build application against Media SDK interface:

  • libmfx.a dispatcher – the API for your application
  • libmfxhw64.so hardware implementation
  • related libraries (including OpenCL)
  • specific versions for libva and libdrm
  • user mode driver
  • modified i915 graphics driver module
  • kernel patches

Here are the steps:

STEP 1) Enable internal graphics in your system.

STEP 2) Install the right CentOS 7 – 7.4.1708

STEP 3) Download Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1

STEP 4) Install Intel Media Studio SDK from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1

“Install Intel Media Studio SDK and GPU driver from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 – CentOS 7 (7.4.1708)”

STEP 5) Tune pkgconfig libmfx (Intel library, installed with the Media Server Studio)

Create a file:

/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/libmfx.pc

with the following content:

prefix=/opt/intel/mediasdk
exec_prefix=${prefix}
libdir=${prefix}/lib/lin_x64
includedir=${prefix}/include
 
Name: libmfx
Description: Intel Media SDK
Version: 16.8
Libs: -L${libdir} -lmfx -lva -lstdc++ -ldl -lva-drm -ldrm
Cflags: -I${includedir} -I/usr/include/libdrm

STEP 6) Move the Media SDK include files in a mfx sub-directory

This is required because ffmpeg expect these files to be in a sub-directory

[root@srv ~]# mkdir /opt/intel/mediasdk/include/mfx
[root@srv ~]# cp /opt/intel/mediasdk/include/*.h /opt/intel/mediasdk/include/mfx/

STEP 7) Install yasm – a dependency for the ffmpeg software.

[root@srv ~]# wget http://www.tortall.net/projects/yasm/releases/yasm-1.3.0.tar.gz
[root@srv ~]# tar xzf yasm-1.3.0.tar.gz
[root@srv ~]# cd yasm-1.3.0

STEP 8) Download ffmpeg version 2.8.X and compile it

it is important to use this branch 2.8.X because we’ve tested with the others 3.2.X, 3.3.X, 3.4.X and there were errors and we unable to use the the GPU unit to accelerate our video decoding and encoding. Here is the different ffmpeg release https://ffmpeg.org/download.html#releases or you can use the github to download https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/releases

[root@srv ~]# wget https://www.ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-2.8.14.tar.bz2

If you get a build error like this, you skipped the (STEP 6) Move the Media SDK include files in a mfx sub-directory. This is required because ffmpeg expect these files to be in a sub-directory. Just move the files in a sub-directory mfx as it is shown in (STEP 6)

Install Intel Media Studio SDK and GPU driver from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 – CentOS 7 (7.4.1708)

This tutorial shows how to install GPU video Driver for Intel Internal Graphics – the GPU unit in Intel processors and the Intel Media SDK to enable hardware video decoding and encoding capabilities of the Intel processors with GPU builtin.

Installing Media Server Studio your system will get validated stack of software by Intel to build application against Media SDK interface. So you’ll put in your system not only Intel software but the proper version of the libraries, on which the Intel Media SDK depends on. At the end your application will link to the Intel libmfx dispatcher. Basically you get:

  • libmfx.a dispatcher – the API for your application
  • libmfxhw64.so hardware implementation
  • related libraries (including OpenCL)
  • specific versions for libva and libdrm
  • user mode driver
  • modified i915 graphics driver module
  • kernel patches

STEP 1) Enable internal graphics in your system.

Not only you have to enable the internal graphics from the BIOS of your motherboard, but you must verify the mother board supports internal graphics. Here is the tutorial for the SUPERMICRO servers – “Enable internal graphics in SUPERMICRO servers”. As you can see from the link, for SUPEMICRO servers you will need:

Intel Xeon E3-1200 v4 Family with C226 chipset
Intel Xeon E3-1200 and E3-1500 v5 Family with C236 chipset

But you can use a Desktop processor like Intel i3, i5, i7, which have builtin GPU and the chances the motherboard supports it is really big, just enable it from the BIOS.

STEP 2) Install the right CentOS 7 – 7.4.1708

We need this specific version, because at present the latest version of Intel Media Server Studio requires it. Intel support only this specific version with their latest Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 – we need it because it ships the needed Intel GPU driver and the right libraries to compile against. Here is a howto how you can install this version – Howto do a netinstall of CentOS 7 – minimal server installation Now this version is deprecated so you could have problems finding it. Here is the right place – http://vault.centos.org/7.4.1708/isos/x86_64/ Just follow the instructions for downloading.
Check the right version of the CentOS 7 and whether you enabled successfully the Internal Graphics in the BIOS:

[root@srv ~]# cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core) 
[root@srv ~]# uname -a
Linux conv11.mytv.bg 3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 22 21:09:27 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@srv ~]# lspci |grep Display
00:02.0 Display controller: Intel Corporation Iris Pro Graphics P580 (rev 09)

Iris Pro Graphics P580 (rev 09)

is the GPU unit of “Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1585 v5 @ 3.50GHz”. If you do not see it with lspci you woud not be able to proceed with the steps below.

STEP 3) Download Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1

We have another howto to follow for this step. Because Intel want to register before downloading it we made another howto with the steps and what to expect in the Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 package – just follow the simple steps (to register and download): “Download, what is in the package Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 and which linux distro it supports”

STEP 4) Install Intel Media Studio SDK from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1

It assumes you are the root user, downloaded the MediaServerStudioEssentials2018R1.tar.gz from the previous step (step 3) and put the file in /root/ directory.

[root@srv ~]# ls -la MediaServerStudioEssentials2018R1.tar.gz

This Version of MediaServerStudio has been validated against CentOS 7.4.1708.
To install MediaServerStudio there is a requirement to install packages using yum package manager.
yum package manager automatically installs from latest CentOS released version repository.
If CentOS latest release version is newer than 7.4.1708, yum will default to install packages from this repository.
This could lead to packages been installed that could conflict with this version of MediaServerStudio and cause installation to fail.
It is ultimate responsibility of user to manage yum repositories to ensure that packages installed during installation of MediaServerStudio using yum package manger are installed from correct repository.
For more information on CentOS version please see: "https://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General#head-dcca41e9a3d5ac4c6d900a991990fd11930867d6"


User has 3 options to proceed with installation:
1: (default) Installation Script will automatically attempt to enable correct repositories to install from.
2: User can manually edit yum repository files to ensure yum installs from correct repository, i.e. "--releasever=7.4.1708" is workable.
   If this option is chosen installation will abort then user need to fix yum repository files and run this script again.
3: Force installation from default yum repository, i.e. using "--releasever=7" yum option (ONLY for advanced users who clearly know what will happen)

If no response in 120 seconds option 1 will be default [1]2

   Here is an example how to fix yum repository file but just for information -
   Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo, comment out the mirrorlist lines, uncomment and edit the baseurl lines for each entry to point to correct URL -
   (a)
   ====================================================================================================
   #mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os&infra=$infra
   baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
   ====================================================================================================
   OR (b)
   ====================================================================================================
   #mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os&infra=$infra
   baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
   ====================================================================================================
   The reason of (b) is centos will move from mirror to vault for old versions then (a) won't work any longer.
   One example for old CentOS7.2 is
       http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7.2.1511/readme
   It is expected the same deprecation of mirror will happen one day for CentOS7.4, too.

Please finish the modification and re-run the script to install.

Edit your

/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

and put in it the following:

[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os&infra=$infra
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-7

Execute the installation script again (full log of the installation you can see at the end of the howto):

Installation done. Please reboot.
[root@srv CentOS_7.4]# reboot

You can see this time the installation script completed successfully. You should reboot to load the Intel GPU driver.

STEP 5) Verify the installation of Intel GPU driver and Intel Media Studio SDK

After you reboot your machine you should check if the Intel GPU driver is loaded and is working properly:

The Intel Graphic Driver is loaded successfully as you can see, it is very important to have a directory

/dev/dri/

and “dev” devices like

/dev/dri/renderD128

/dev/dri/controlD64

/dev/dri/card0 or/and /dev/dri/card1

After the reboot if you get

[root@srv ~]# ls -altr /dev/dri/
ls: cannot access /dev/dri/: No such file or directory

see the troubleshooting section below!
You can use a sample program from the SDK to verify everything is installed properly – the Driver and the libraries are installed and loaded.

* Troubleshooting – missing /dev/dri/ directory and no KMS by default!

If you see the above error of missing

/dev/dri

directory, but the driver seems loaded it is because by default on some systems the modsetting is off (KMS – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_setting) and now thw driver is half working. So you need to remove the driver and load it with a parameter:

[root@srv ~]# rmmod i915

[root@srv ~]# dmesg|grep drm

You see a lot more information for “drm” in “dmesg” and the “dev” devices are here:

[root@srv ~]# ls -al /dev/dri/

drwxr-xr-x.  2 root root       100 25 Jun 13,20 .

crw-rw----.  1 root video 226, 128 25 Jun 13,20 renderD128
[root@srv ~]#

If you see the “/dev/dri/renderD128” the Intel GPU driver is loaded correctly and you can use hardware video decoding and encoding.
It is a good practice to enable it by default (of course, if it wasn’t by default! If in your system the KMS load by default you can skip it):
First check if in /etc/default/grub there is “nomodeset” in “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX” and remove it and update your grub2 configuration with (the BIOS of the server is in UEFI mode for sure if you want to have KMS):

[root@srv ~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/centos/grub.cfg 
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64.img
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-0-rescue-c1a8b43c94cb4b5caa8786ca5e85211c
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-0-rescue-c1a8b43c94cb4b5caa8786ca5e85211c.img
done
[root@srv ~]# reboot

Reboot and check again if the driver loaded with modsetting (KMS) enabled. If it is still not loaded properly you could try to add to “/etc/default/grub” in “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX” the following (just add the two options to the other options in the variable – you could try first only the first one, because preliminary_hw_support could lead to instability in some hardware):

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i915.modeset=1 i915.preliminary_hw_support=1"

And then againt regenerate the grub2 config with:

[root@srv ~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/centos/grub.cfg 
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64.img
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-0-rescue-c1a8b43c94cb4b5caa8786ca5e85211c
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-0-rescue-c1a8b43c94cb4b5caa8786ca5e85211c.img
done
[root@srv ~]# reboot

Now you should have “/dev/dri” directory.

Download, what is in the package Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 and which linux distro it supports

This howto is just information what to expect from the community package of Intel Media Server Studio.

This package is the starting point of the Quick Sync using and development process – you’ll need parts of it if you want to use hardware encoding and decoding for video streams like MPEG-2, H.264, VC-1, VP8, VP9, HEVC and more!


Most of the time this package is needed for the Intel® Media SDK and the graphics drivers it provides. So the main purpose here is to give you an information which version of the SDK and the graphics drivers are included in the different package and which kernel and Linux distro is supported.
Different versions support different OS linux distros – mainly different CentOS 7. The package supports also a Generic Linux installation on a relatively older kernel.

First we start how to freely download the “Intel Media Server Studio Community Edition” from the Intel site: https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-media-server-studio
This package (as you can see below) supports CentOS 7.4.1708 or any linux distro by downloading kernel 4.4.111.

STEP 1) Get the free community edition, select “Community” from the dropdown as shown and click on “Free Download”.

main menu
Intel Media Server Studio 2018 for Linux

STEP 2) Intel wants to register before downloading the Community edition, if you have already had an account you could sign in.

Fill the data with your personal and company details, do not fake them! You can miss something important from Intel and you know they give you a big piece of software for free, which could help you a lot!

main menu
Intel user registration

STEP 3) Check your details, enter your password and click “Register” on the bottom.

main menu
Register an Account

STEP 4) Click on “Choose a Version” and select “2018 2018_R1” – this is the latest version at the moment.

If you need another one just choose the right for you from the dropdown box. Check the checkbox with the “Consent to the collection of the information and would like to download the software”.

main menu
Intel Media Server Studio community Edition – 2018

STEP 5) To download the package click in “Intel Media Server Studio for Linux*”, the file is 549MB in size.

main menu
Intel Media Server Studio community Edition – 2018 Download

STEP 6) The file name is MediaServerStudioEssentials2018R1.tar.gz and in fact it is the Essentials version of the studio without any paid support.

main menu
Intel Media Server Studio community Edition – 2018 – file name

As you can see there is no storage Device with name “srv1-img” as it expected from the error above.
You should check two files:

bacula-dir.conf

and

bacula-sd.conf

In file “/etc/bacula/bacula-dir.conf” you should have section like this:

Storage {
  Name = srv1-img
  Address = 10.10.10.10
  SDPort = 9103
  Password = mysecretpass
  Device = srv1-img
  Media Type = File
  Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 10
}

And in file “/etc/bacula/bacula-sd.conf”:

Device {
   Name = srv1-img
   Media Type = File
   Archive Device = /mnt/storage/backups/srv1-img
   LabelMedia = yes;
   Random Access = Yes;
   AutomaticMount = yes;
   RemovableMedia = no;
   AlwaysOpen = no;
 }

The important parts for this particular error (“3924 Device “srv1-img” not in SD Device resources or no matching Media Type.”) are highlighted:

  1. “Name” – the name of the storage
  2. “Media Type” – the type of the storage

You may also check the path of the storage – /mnt/storage/backups/srv1-img.

The two parameters must be the same! And if you verify these two configurations exist in the files and the above two parameters are the same and still get the error you MUST restart your SD (storage device) daemon, a “reload” command from the bconsole won’t work!

bkp-srv bacula # systemctl restart bacula-sd.service
bkp-srv bacula # systemctl status bacula-sd.service
* bacula-sd.service - LSB: Start Bacula Storage Daemon at boot time

Enable internal graphics in SUPERMICRO servers

Here are the steps to enable your internal graphics – the CPU internal video chip in your Intel processor. Multiple Intel processors have video unit in it, which could be used for hardware decoding and encoding of video streams. We have two kind of processors:

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1585 v5 @ 3.50GHz

and

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1285 v4 @ 3.50GHz

the two processors packed with the right motherboard will give you a big advance in hardware decoding and encoding with your server! Intel calls it “Intel Quick Sync Video” and to use it your chipset should support it, so when using SUPERMICRO your motherboard must be equipped with C226 (for v4 CPU) and C236 (for v5 CPU)! Your CPU could have video unit in it, but if your chipset does not support internal graphics you won’t be able to use it, so be careful to have C226 or C236 Chipsets!
So if you have another setup (not Supermicro) you should check the chipset of your motherboard if it support internal graphics this is very important, because there are numerous motherboard, which have BIOS options for Enable/Disable of the internal graphics, but you cannot use it!
Here are the compliant platforms to use the video unit properly:

Intel Xeon E3-1200 v4 Family with C226 chipset
Intel Xeon E3-1200 and E3-1500 v5 Family with C236 chipset

If you enabled the internal graphics properly you’ll see it in hardware devices Device manager in MS Windows and in linux with “lspci”:

[root@srv ~]# lspci |grep -i display
00:02.0 Display controller: Intel Corporation Device 193a (rev 09)

Your BIOS menus could vary, but for SUPERMICRO there are vary similar:

STEP 1) The SUPERMICRO server is intializing you. Hit “DEL” button on your keyboard to enter BIOS Setup.

How to install new gcc and development tools under CentOS 7

CentOS 7 is very stable and conservative operating system. It offers us free enterprise class operating system, which is compatible with Red Hat, but in many situations we need a newer (not even a bleeding edge) tools from a trusted source not from a unknown third repository! Let’s say you are developer and you need newer than GCC 4.8 (which is more than 5 years old nd at present we have stable GCC 8.x stable branch). There are repositories, which would surely break your system at one point even they do not break it at first installing a newer version of GNU GCC! There is a really easy and “official” way to have newer development software in CentOS 7 by using the Software Collection – https://www.softwarecollections.org/en/scls/
We can say these packages are officially maintained by CentOS 7 team and as a whole Red Hat/CentOS officials and community developers! The collaction aims at

  1. Multiple version installed of the same components, you can have multiple GNU GCC installed without breaking your system or compiling manually. Not only GNU GCC, you can have PHP, Ruby, Pyhton, famous databases like Mysql, Mongodb, PostgreSQL and many more
  2. To have newer version of the same components, you can have multiple version of GNU GCC – you can install with no worries of breaking your system GNU GCC 6 and 7

So here is how you do it:

STEP 1) Install the repository in your system

yum install centos-release-scl

Here is the output in our system:

STEP 3) Use the installed tools.

Because using such a package with multiple complex packages you must configure multiple environment and links to the versions you installed replacing the ones from your base system, but the package comes with a handy tool, which executing it will configure everything and you are ready to go!

scl enable devtoolset-7 bash

And you’ll be in a bash environment, which is configured for GNU GCC 7.

[srv@local ~]# scl enable devtoolset-7 bash
[srv@local ~]# which gcc
/opt/rh/devtoolset-7/root/usr/bin/gcc
[srv@local ~]# gcc --version

[root@srv ~]#

As long as you are in this bash shell (you do not type exit) your environment is configured to use GNU GCC 7 and you can use make, cmake to compile your projects with this newer version.

Before entering the devtoolset-7 bash shell, here is the error for the GNU GCC version:

[srv@local build]# cmake3 ../

Replace an old IP with new one in all files of all sub-directories recursively

Here is a quick Linux tip for those who want to replace their old IP with new one for all files in a given directory and all its sub-directories recursively:

find [path-to-directory] -type f -print0 | xargs -0 sed -i 's[old-IP-escape-dot]/[new-IP]/g'

Quick example:

find /etc/nginx/ -type f -print0 | xargs -0 sed -i 's/192\.168\.10\.124/10.10.10.224/g'

As you can see the directory is “/etc/nginx” and replace it with the directory where are your (configuration) files are. We are replacing old IP=192.168.10.124 with the new one 10.10.10.224, so after the execution of the above line you’ll get modified files with IP 10.10.10.224.
You must escape the dot “.” in the IP!

Mount and boot ISO file from windows share in Supermicro IPMI Virtual media (CD-ROM)

This tutorial shows you how to load any ISO file in the virtual CD/DVD-ROM of a Supermicro server and boot from it if it is bootable. You could install operating systems from a ISO file or just share a data. Here we use an installation DVD disk of CentOS 7 to boot. This tutorial expect there is a windows (samba) share on the local network if you need to do it you can check here – Configure and mount samba share in Supermicro IPMI Virtual media (CD-ROM)
Loading an ISO disk in the (virtual) CD/DVD-ROM device attached to your server could be of a great help to the system administrators, you could use diagnostic disks, update disks (BIOS and firmware of devices), install multiple operating systems including MS Windows, share data and many more! You could use ISO disk right from your computer or from a server next to the server you want to use the ISO to speed up access.

STEP 1) When you are logged in the Supermicro IPMI web interface click on Virtual Media menu and then CD-ROM Image.

Configure and mount samba share in Supermicro IPMI Virtual media (CD-ROM)

Having many Supermicro servers we used multiple times Virtual Media to install, diagnose and rescue Supermicro server. It is really simple to open the Console Redirection – java web start and just mount the ISO file from Virtual Media -> ISO File, but this way if your server is not local to your network and it is located in a colocation as it should be the connection is slow and in many cases bogus! Because it uses UDP it happened many times to remount or just to lose the connection and the media to disappear in the middle of the booting/loading process from the installation media, for example. And probably you have noticed there is additional option in the web interface of mounting ISO file from a windows share. Of course, in linux world it might be samba share as in our case and the share could be easily configured on a server in your colocation.
And we noticed was several times we have no problems using it, but some time the share could not be even saved and respectively could not be mounted. No error reported, just the edit boxes resets to blank and apparently everything was the same as the previous box, which it worked as a charm!
Here are the steps to enable one of your CentOS 7 servers to share a resource and to use it in your Supermicro IPMI KVM. The server is selinux enabled and the policy is Enforcing.

STEP 1) Install samba server in CentOS 7

STEP 2) Configure samba server CentOS 7 for the purpose of using it in IPMI Virtual share.

We are going to use a share without login credentials, because our KVM IP are always local ones and accessed via a vpn network and in addition only the network of the IPMI IPs could access the share (the samba server has a firewall configured).
Set the configuration file of the samba server – one directory storing the files shared with no login credentials (no username/password means anonymous login).
The configuration file is:

/etc/samba/smb.conf

[global]
workgroup = WINSHARE
server string = Samba Server %v
netbios name = centossrv
security = user
map to guest = bad user
dns proxy = no
#============================ Share Definitions ============================== 
[share]
path = /mnt/storage1/samba
browsable =yes
writable = no
guest ok = yes
read only = yes

As you can see we use “/mnt/storage1/samba” for our directory where the ISO files will be located. Change this path if you want to put your ISO files somewhere else.
Set the right permissions for the directory and selinux (if you server is not selinux enabled, you could skip the selinux part) and run the samba daemon:

[root@srv0 ~]# mkdir /mnt/storage1/samba
[root@srv0 ~]# chown -R nobody:nobody /mnt/storage1/samba/
[root@srv0 ~]# semanage fcontext -a -t samba_share_t '/mnt/storage1/samba(/.*)?'
[root@srv0 ~]# restorecon -Rv /mnt/storage1/samba/
restorecon reset /mnt/storage1/samba context unconfined_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s0->unconfined_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0
[root@srv0 ~]# cd /mnt/storage1/samba/

Configure the firewall to allow only connections from the IPMI KVM IP networks (or a single IP if you need to expose it in the Internet). You can work with build in zone “trusted”, but here we prefer more generic approach, which could be used not only for local IP networks but for real IPs:

[root@srv0 samba]# firewall-cmd --new-zone=smbshare --permanent
success
[root@srv0 samba]# firewall-cmd --zone=smbshare --add-source=192.168.7.0/24 --permanent

STEP 3) Mount a disk in IPMI Virutal Media and boot from it

You could check our additional tutorial for it here –

STEP 3.1) Fill “Share host” and “Path image” only, because we configured our samba share without a password

main menu
Image on Windows Share

STEP 3.2) Upon a successful configuration saving you’ll get a confirmation dialog.

If no confirmation is shown you would not be able to mount the share, check out our Troubleshooting below!

main menu
Save configuration of Image on Windows Share

STEP 3.3) After saving the configuration click on “Mount” to load your ISO file in the virtual CD-ROM.

STEP 3.4) This dialog is always shown no matter there is such share or not: “Please check the device status to confirm whether the image is mounted/unmounted.”

main menu
Check device status

STEP 3.5) If the Supermicro IPMI accessed successfully the share resource it would mount it (load the ISO file as s CD in the virtual CD-ROM).

If not the three Device 1,2,3 will show the same: “No disk emulation set.”, which means the samba share is not accessible, check the permissions for the file and the firewall first (and the logs files, too).

main menu
There is an iso file mounted

* Troubleshooting

– if you click on button “Save” and just nothing happen – no dialog for successful saving and no dialog at all, probably there is a Javascript error, try to open the web interface from a different browser with clean history or click ctrl+F5 when loading the Virtual Media page!

Cannot save and mount a Supermicro IPMI Virtual media mount – javascript error?

If you have multiple Supermicro servers with many different versions of IPMI KVM software installed it could happen your browser to cache some of the JavaScript and other static content to reuse them, but it could very unpleasant when you have different version of IPMI software on different servers and you might notice strange behavior of the web interface! Especially if you use ssh tunneling to access your multiple Supermicro IPMI KVMs from local IP on your computerTunneling the IPMI/KVM ports over ssh (supermicro ipmi ports)

One of the big problems we have when we wanted to mount a Virtual Media

from a windows share (samba share in our case) in IPMI KVM web interface -> Virtual Media -> CD-ROM image -> Save and when the Save is clicked just nothing happen (sometimes it triggers a reload of the iframe) – no error nothing and no confirmation for successful save! At first it seems the web interface accepted the “Share Host” and “Path to Image”:

main menu
Fill “Share Host” and “Path to Image”

but when you click “Mount” it does not mount the media:
main menu
no disk emulation set

and when you reload the CD-ROM image page you get again blank edit boxes or (the old values):
main menu
Old values

Probably a refresh will get the values blank:
main menu
Blank edit boxes

And if you check your browser console you’ll see there is a JavaScript error:

Uncaught ReferenceError: FocusOnErrorSpecificCharSet3 is not defined

The error might be different, this was in our case. the problem was

the browser cached “https://192.168.0.170/js/utils.js”

from one of the previous servers and there the version of the IPMI KVM software was different and apparently the

/js/utils.js

was throwing an error and not working (this function did not exist in some older Supermicro IPMI KVM versions, the file is there but it is slightly different). The solution is so simple!

Just refresh the page with CTRL+F5 or delete the history or use another browser.

Such a simple problem, but could lead to big problems if you try to use the mount virtual media. In fact look for problems in the JavaScript if you cannot save the configuration in the “Share Host” and “Path to Image”, because when saving the IPMI do not check if there is a live “Share Host” with a windows/samba share and an image there, the software just check for special in “Shared” characters like:

var SpeficCharFilter = /[,; &'"<>\\=$|^?*~`()\[\]\{\}#%]/;

And for the password:

var SpeficCharFilter = /[,; &'"<>\\=$|^?~`()\[\]\{\}#%]/;

But in both cases you’ll get an alert with an error.

So to summer it up if you put IP and a path to the windows share of Virtual Media and click “Save” and nothing happen – no confirmation for successful saving you got a JavaScript error and probably your browser cached one of the JavaScript files, the solution is simple just refresh with CTRL+F5 or load from different browser!
We often use ssh tunneling for IPMI KVM accessTunneling the IPMI/KVM ports over ssh (supermicro ipmi ports) and different version of the static files of the supermicro IPMI web interface are cached locally, which as you can see could have really bad consequences!
