How to run and install IPMIView on Mac

Edit: The download link doesn’t work anymore, but it looks like IPMIView is now available in the Mac App Store. Also, just in case, someone suggested running the Linux version on Mac.

Softlayer cloud uses IPMIView for direct console access to bare metal hardware. SuperMicro makes a Mac version of IPMIView available for download.

Bizarrely, SuperMicro doesn’t appear to have ever tested it, because double-clicking on the downloaded IPMIView20 application doesn’t do anything. This is because someone forgot to set the execute permission on the installer.

Supposing it’s in your downloads folder, open up Terminal and run the following commands:

This will open up the installer for you. Once it’s installed, it will show up in your Launchpad like a normal application.
