I apologise in advance because I don't know how to help you, but there is always the IPMI Java iKVM app that OVH provides for it's dedicated servers.
That's how I manage my HOST-32L dedicated.
Is that something you would be able to use?

Before setting up iptables, I want to ensure that I have console access to my new MC-32 server (CentOS 7) lest I lock myself out. ;-)

The instructions at do not apply to CentOS 7, which uses systemd in place of init.d

So I am unable to configure IPMI; please can anyone provide or refer me to instructions for doing this, or suggest a workaround?
