ipmiutil_reset — perform a hardware reset on the system

Synopsis

ipmiutil reset [-bcdDefhijmnoprsuwxy -N node -U user -P/-R pswd -EFJTVY]

Description

ipmiutil reset is a program that uses IPMI commands to perform a hardware reset of the chassis, or boot to a specific device. 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.

-c
Power Cycle the system chassis
-d
Power Down the system chassis
-n
Send NMI to the system
-u
Power Up the system chassis
-r
Hard Reset the system chassis
-D
Do a soft shutdown of the OS, and then power down. Note that remote soft shutdown (-D -N) for Intel S5000 baseboard requires ipmiutil getevt -a running on the target server.
-o
Do a soft shutdown of the OS, and then reset. Note that remote soft shutdown (-o -N) for Intel S5000 baseboard requires ipmiutil getevt -a running on the target server.
-k
Do a cold reset to restart the BMC firmware.
-m 002000s
Perform these function for a specific MC (e.g. bus 00, sa 20, lun 00). The trailing character, if present, indicates SMI addressing if 's', or IPMB addressing if 'i' or not present.
-b
Do a hard reset and reboot to the BIOS Setup menu, for this reboot only.
-e
Do a hard reset to EFI, if IPMI EFI boot is enabled, for this reboot only.
-f
Do a hard reset to Floppy/Removable, for this reboot only.
-h
Do a hard reset to a Hard Disk, for this reboot only.
-i
Set the boot Initiator mailbox string, usually for PXE use. The string must be less than 78 characters.
-j
Set the IANA number used for the boot Initiator mailbox string.
-p
Do a hard reset and network boot to PXE server, for this reboot only.
-s
Do a hard reset and reboot to the Service/Diagnostic Partition, for this reboot only. Reboots to the default if no service partition is configured.
-v
Do a hard reset to DVD/CDROM Media, for this reboot only.
-w
Wait for BMC ready after a reset before exiting the utility.
-x
Causes extra debug messages to be displayed.
-y
Yes, try to persist any boot options used [-befhprsv]. This requires the IPMI firmware to ask the BIOS to change boot order settings, so it may not be supported by all BMC firmware vendors.
-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.
-P/-R rmt_pswd
Remote password for the nodename given. The default is a null password.
-U rmt_user
Remote username for the nodename given. The default is a null username.
-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.
