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.

       <connectionparms>
	      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 ansychronous 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 system interface connections,  it  will
	      not work on LAN connections.

       unregcmd netfn cmd
	      Remove a command registration.

KNOWN PROBLEMS
       The asychronous nature of the program can be annoying.
