I'm using opensuse 12.3 on a supermicro server platform. I want to setup a watchdog to reboot my server just in case. Since my case has a bmc build-in, I installed all impi-related software and can set bmc-watchdog for a countdown. However, I could not find any software to reset the timer ( like watchdog from ubuntu), so activating bmc-watchdog results in a reset after specified timeout.

What can I do about it?
