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  re-
	      sponse  (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 con-
	      nection.

       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 connec-
	      tions.

       unregcmd	netfn cmd
	      Remove a command registration.

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