ipmiseld.conf ā€” ipmiseld configuration file

Description

The ipmiseld configuration file configures the ipmiseld daemon.

The default configuration file loaded is /etc/freeipmi//ipmiseld.conf.

The configuration options that can be specified in the configuration file are listed below. Each configuration option must be listed on a separate line. Arguments for an option are separated by any amount of whitespace. Multiple arguments are also separated by whitespace. Comments can be marked by using the pound sign ("#") character, and lines can be continued on the next using backslash ("\").

Note that it is possible to list the username, password and other potentially sensitive information in the configuration file. If this data is stored in a configuration file, system administrators should limit access to this file.
