SunFire X2100 and IPMITool Commands

After writing my previous blog, I've found there are a few IPMITool commands that I run often. Here is a list of those commands. IPMItool allows for many options, most of which I haven't used. But here are a few that I've used quite a bit. In my case, I've simply put these aliases in my /etc/profile, but you can put them anywhere. I'm also performing all the remote access from a Solaris box.

If anyone has recommendations of other IPMI tools for Mac, I'd be interested, as most of my work is done on a iMac.

The options/assumptions that I'm sending the ipmitool in these alias shortcuts are:

ipmitool parameter Description and Example
-A password Forces authtype to be password
-H foo.example.com Hostname of the SMDC card
-U Admin Use the Admin account on the SMDC card
-I lan Use the LAN interface to access the SMDC card
Generic ipmitool command
Represents the common parameters used by all ipmitool commads.
	alias ipmi=”/opt/ipmitool/bin/ipmitool \\
				-A password \\
				-H foo.example.com \\
				-U Admin \\
				-I lan”
Powering ON/OFF X2100
ipmitool allows for the powering on, off and cycling the server.
	alias impi-power=”ipmi power”

Console in the X2100

	alias impi-console=”ipmi tsol”

Status of the X2100

	alias impi-status=”ipmi chassis status”

Thanks, this and the SMDC setup are unusually hard to find.
