openipmicmd(1)						     An IPMI Command Interface						    openipmicmd(1)

NAME
openipmicmd - An IPMI Command Interface SYNOPSIS
openipmicmd [-k entry-to-execute] <connection parms> DESCRIPTION
The openipmicmd program allows a user to execute direct IPMI commands. It can work with direct interface with the OpenIPMI driver or with IPMI LAN interfaces. OPTIONS
-k entry-to-execute Execute a single command an exit. <connection parms> The parameters for the connection depend on the connection type. These are all described in openipmi_conparms (7) COMMANDS
Once up, you can execute commands in the user interface. Note that commands and responses are asynchronous, you issue a command and the interface returns immediately. When the response comes back, it will be dumped on your console. That's a little strange looking, but IPMI is asynchronous underneath. Note that the -k option is synchronous, it will wait for the response or a timeout before returning. 0f lun netfn cmd [data1 [data2 ...]] Send a command to the BMC you are connected to. channel [ipmb] IPMB-addr lun netfn [seq] cmd [data1 [data2 ...]] Send a command to a device on the IPMB bus. The "ipmb" string is optional. The seq must be provided if the netfn is a response (an odd number). It must be the same sequence number that came in on the command in the "Command Sequence = seq" part of the command. channel 00 IPMB-addr lun netfn cmd [data1 [data2 ...]] Send a broadcast command to a device on the IPMB bus. channel lan handle remote-swid local-swid lun netfn cmd [data1 [data ...]] Send a command to a device over a LAN channel. Note that this not the same as a LAN connection. This sends a message through a local BMC to a remote system that is hooked up with a LAN connection. test_lat count command Executes the given commands (one of the previous commands) count times and gives the average time per command to execute. Note that "count" is hexadecimal. help Display some help. regcmd netfn cmd Register to receive the given command. If the driver receives an external command, it will print it out. This only works with sys- tem interface connections, it will not work on LAN connections. unregcmd netfn cmd Remove a command registration. SEE ALSO

The asynchronous nature of the program can be annoying. AUTHOR

solterm(1)						   IPMI Serial over LAN program 						solterm(1)

NAME
solterm - An IPMI Serial over LAN program SYNOPSIS
solterm <connection parms> [-e escape_char] [-notencrypted] [-notauthenticated] [-bitrate (9600|19200|38400|57600|115200)] [-alerts (suc- ceed|defer|fail)] [-holdoff] [-ack-retries n] [-ack-timeout microseconds] [-v] [-q] DESCRIPTION
The solterm program allows a user to make a remote serial connection over IPMI. The requires that the remote system support IPMI 2.0 Serial Over LAN. OPTIONS
<connection parms> The parameters for the connection depend on the connection type. These are all described in openipmi_conparms (7) -e escape_char The character to use to escape, or exit, the program. Entering this chatacter right after a newline is entered causes the program to go into command mode. A single character after this performs a command. The default escape character is "~" as shown below. Suppported commands are: ~. Terminate the program ~B Send a serial BREAK over the connection ~F Flush all buffers ~R Assert the Ring Indicator (RI) line ~r Deassert the Ring Indicator (RI) line ~D Assert DCD and DSR lines ~d Deassert DCD and DSR lines ~C Pause the output using CTS ~c Put CTS under BMC control ~? Help on escape commands ~~ Enter the escape character twice to send it. -notencrypted Do not encrypt the SOL data going over the connection. -notauthenticated Do not do integrity checks on the SOL data going over the connection. -bitrate Set the bitrate to the given value. The default is whatever the BMC has set it to. -alerts This specifies what to do if a alert that requires a callout occurs on the line. succeed specifies that serial/modem alerts are to succeed while SoL is active. deferred specifies that serial/modem alerts are to be deferred for the duration of the SoL session. fail specifies that serial/modem alerts automatically fail during the SoL session. This is the default. -holdoff Specifies that CTS, DTR, and DSR are to be deasserted at the start of the SoL session so that the configuration may be modifeid before the handshake is released. -v Be more verbose. Maybe specified multiple time for more output. -q Be less verbose. Maybe specified multiple time for less output. SEE ALSO
