System Package 2.00 Release Notes


  • Our standard ATX products (this includes Talos II and Blackbird) now ship with an easy to use Web GUI installed on the BMC.
    • Earlier methods of interacting with the BMC, including firmware updates over SSH, will continue to be supported across all product lines as they are efficient at scale in larger deployments. The Web GUI is just another way of interacting with the BMC, targeted at individual users and SME.
    • The login credentials for SSH and the Web GUI are shared -- changing one will change the other. This makes it easy to change your BMC root password from a Web browser on a second computer if required.
    • The Web server will not respond to http:// requests. You must access it via https:// only.
  • After upgrading from any system firmware package version before 2.00, spurious entries left over from previous firmware versions may show up in the system inventory. You can clear these from the BMC command line, with chassis power off as follows:
    rm -rf /var/lib/phosphor-inventory-manager/xyz/openbmc_project/inventory/system/chassis

When the BMC starts back up and the system is powered back on, the inventory will re-populate with correct data.
