We then create a ram disk, unzip the new bios there, and run.

The method that I found to be easiest was to use Rufus to create a bootable USB stick, and then just add the Supermicro BIOS firmware onto the USB stick. The latest firmware will be offered for download, with a giant warning telling you that upgrading firmware is risky business.
This post will go over how to easily update the BIOS on a Supermicro board, along with another post that will cover using the Emulex One Command software plugin for v Center to easily discover and update the CNA firmware.
Some call it flashing the BIOS (like me) and others call it updating the BIOS.

Supermicro makes some really amazing motherboards and are a key piece of my home lab whitebox strategy.
I’m incredibly happy with the built-in IPMI and remote KVM / Media abilities that come standard with the X9SCM board.
I've already set the IP address using ipmitool command successfully, but now I need to configure ...
ipmitool reports ok when sensor data is fine and below threshold and ns when no sensor reading available.
Note that IPMI seems to have more than its fair share of TLAs.
