While I was aware of the existence of the management port, I'd regarded it a
daunting distraction (ref. "IPMI", "BMC", "ILO", and a 224-page manual to
explain it all). Your suggestion inspired me to revisit the thing, if only
for a brief while.
At least the enabling and disabling of my keyboard (the original problem) is
repeatable. A constant background pinging of my computer's management port
showed it to go on and off network for no apparent reason. During the
periods it was active, an HTML client afforded nothing more than a
"settings" interface and a Telnet client never yielded anything more than a
"/./->" prompt (though for what I do not know). The only thing that seemed
remotely consistent was that the interface would go down a soon as the
kernel began loading.
If there is truly light at the end of this tunnel then, I'm afraid, I just
cannot see it right now.
Thanks, though, for replying.
