Updating the fru and sensor data
Local SDR cache from a remote system can be created with the sdr dump command.Use device number N to specify the /dev/ipmi N (or /dev/ipmi/N or /dev/ipmidev/N) device to use for in-band BMC communication.Depending on the particular requirements of each system it may be possible to enable the LAN interface using ipmitool over the system interface. The key is expected in hexadecimal format and can be used to specify keys with non-printable characters. '-k PASSWORD' and '-y 50415353574F5244' are equivalent. The remote server authentication, integrity, and encryption algorithms to use for IPMIv2 lanplus connections. The default is 3 which specifies RAKP-HMAC-SHA1 authentication, HMAC-SHA1-96 integrity, and AES-CBC-128 encryption algorightms. This usually involves minor hacks in place in the code to work around quirks in various BMCs from various manufacturers.Use -o list to see a list of current supported OEM types. Using a local SDR cache can drastically increase performance for commands that require knowledge of the entire SDR to perform their function.On Solaris this driver is called BMC and is inclued in Solaris 10.Management of a remote station requires the IPMI-over-LAN interface to be enabled and configured.For example, IPMI provides a way to manage a computer that may be powered off or otherwise unresponsive by using a network connection to the hardware rather than to an operating system or login shell.
(2) Select the [Intelligent Platform Management Interface] sub menu.
program provides software-setup tools and installation tools that are designed for the server.
Use this CD during the installation of the server to configure basic hardware features, such as an integrated SAS/SATA controller with RAID capabilities, and to simplify the installation of your operating system.
system power-down and rebooting, or configuring watchdog timers.
The standard also defines an alerting mechanism for the system to send a simple network management protocol (SNMP) platform event trap (PET).
