ipmiutil_dcmi — handle DCMI functions

Synopsis

ipmiutil dcmi [-admsx -NUPREFTVY] <function>

Description

This ipmiutil dcmi subcommand handles DCMI command functions according to the DCMI specification.

This utility can use either the /dev/ipmi0 driver from OpenIPMI, the /dev/imb driver from Intel, the /dev/ipmikcs driver from valinux, direct user-space IOs, or the IPMI LAN interface if -N.

Options

Command line options are described below.

-a string
Set the DCMI Asset Tag to this string.
-d string
Set the DCMI MC ID to this string.
-m 002000
Target a specific MC (e.g. bus 00, sa 20, lun 00). This could be used for PICMG or ATCA blade systems. The trailing character, if present, indicates SMI addressing if 's', or IPMB addressing if 'i' or not present.
-s
When getting info, also get the DCMI sensor information.
-x
Causes extra debug messages to be displayed.
-N nodename
Nodename or IP address of the remote target system. If a nodename is specified, IPMI LAN interface is used. Otherwise the local system management interface is used.
-U rmt_user
Remote username for the nodename given. The default is a null username.
-P/-R rmt_pswd
Remote password for the nodename given. The default is a null password.
-E
Use the remote password from Environment variable IPMI_PASSWORD.
-F drv_t
Force the driver type to one of the followng: imb, va, open, gnu, landesk, lan, lan2, lan2i, kcs, smb. Note that lan2i means lan2 with intelplus. The default is to detect any available driver type and use it.
-J
Use the specified LanPlus cipher suite (0 thru 17): 0=none/none/none, 1=sha1/none/none, 2=sha1/sha1/none, 3=sha1/sha1/cbc128, 4=sha1/sha1/xrc4_128, 5=sha1/sha1/xrc4_40, 6=md5/none/none, ... 14=md5/md5/xrc4_40. Default is 3.
-T
Use a specified IPMI LAN Authentication Type: 0=None, 1=MD2, 2=MD5, 4=Straight Password, 5=OEM.
-V
Use a specified IPMI LAN privilege level. 1=Callback level, 2=User level, 3=Operator level, 4=Administrator level (default), 5=OEM level.
-Y
Yes, do prompt the user for the IPMI LAN remote password. Alternatives for the password are -E or -P.

Functions

info
Get DCMI Capabilities, MC ID, and Asset Tag. This is the default function if no function was specified.
power
Get DCMI Power reading and DCMI Power limit, if supported in the DCMI capabilties.
power set_limit

power set_action <action>
Set Power limit exception action (where action = no_action | power_off | log_sel)
power set_correction
Set Power limit correction time (in ms)
power set_sample
Set Power limit sampling period (in sec)
power activate
