libipmiconsole.conf — specify default values for libipmiconsole

Description

The Libipmiconsole configuration file can be used to set alternate default values for the Libipmiconsole library. The configuration of these defaults may be useful for environments in which programs link to libipmiconsole but do not support configuration of libipmiconsole parameters. Users should be ware that setting alternate default values into Libipmiconsole will affect all tools that link to the library, such as the ipmiconsole(8) tool. For users wishing to set alternate defaults to ipmiconsole(8) please use the freeipmi.conf(5) file instead.

The configuration file is stored at /etc/freeipmi//libipmiconsole.conf.

Format

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 ("\").
