IPMI is dead and GetDedi.com refuse to fix it
I ordered a dedicated server on GetDedi.com before. But since I assigned the IPMI IP address to a network interface, I am no longer able to access IPMI.
When I ask the support to reboot my server to BIOS (so that I can mount an ISO and reinstall the OS myself), they asked me to pay for $37.5 before they will help.
Is there any alternative that I could try to fix it myself? In my case, is it a "must" to pay them $37.5?
My god! US$37.5 is enough for me to purchase other dedicated servers in other providers. Even the whole server is just $54/month. Why the hel1 do I have to pay a lot to restart the server? Maybe $5, $10 is fine, but they are greedy enough. Even I asked them to lower the price a bit, they said $37.5 to perform a reboot is already much cheaper than other providers/companies.
Really, that's a very bad experience. They got an attitude when I asked them to lower the price.
