On rare occasions, such as an issue with the current running firmware, troubleshooting a server may require you to reset the BMC. This procedure is not part of the normal maintenance of a server. After you reset the BMC, the server boots with the running version of the firmware for that server.
The following example resets the BMC for server 4 in chassis 2 and commits the transaction:
UCS-A# scope server 2/4
UCS-A /chassis/server # scope bmc
UCS-A /chassis/server/cimc # reset
UCS-A /chassis/server/cimc* # commit-buffer
UCS-A /chassis/server/cimc #
