NAME

       ipmiutil_alarms - display and set alarm indicators

SYNOPSIS

       ipmiutil alarms [-abcdimnoprx -N node -U user -P/-R pswd -EFJTVY]

DESCRIPTION

       ipmiutil  alarms is a program that uses IPMI commands to display and set alarm indicators,
       which are usually LEDs on the system chassis front panel.  This utility can use either the
       /dev/ipmi0  driver  from OpenIPMI, the /dev/imb driver from Intel, the /dev/ipmikcs driver
       from valinux, direct user-space IOs, or the IPMI LAN interface if -N.   Note  that  a  LAN
       user must have Administrative privileges to read or write the alarm LEDs.

       Note  that this utility may not be the only logic setting alarm states.  The BMC firmware,
       system management software, or cluster fault manager may also want to  set  alarm  states.
       Intel  provides a Telco Alarms Manager API which presents a consolidated interface for all
       alarm management applications.

OPTIONS

       Command line options are described below.

       -r     Read-only.  Show the alarms status, but do not set any states.  This  is  also  the
              default mode if no parameters are specified.

       -iN    Sets  the  Chassis  Identify  feature, which can be an LED or some other alarm.  If
              N=0, turn off the Chassis ID, otherwise turn the ID on for N seconds.   N=255  will
              turn on the ID indefinitely, if it is IPMI 2.0.

       -aN    Sets  Disk  A  Fault LED.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.  Used only for
              TIGPT1U platform.

       -bN    Sets Disk B Fault LED.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.   Used  only  for
              TIGPT1U platform.

       -dXN   Sets  Disk  X  Fault  LED,  where X=0-6.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.
              Used only for NSC2U platform.

       -cN    Sets the Critical Alarm.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.

       -mN    Sets the Major Alarm.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.

       -nN    Sets the Minor Alarm.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it on.

       -pN    Sets the Power Alarm.  If N=0, turn it off.  If N=1, turn it  on.   Note  that  the
              Power  LED is also wired to the System Fault LED in the back of the system, so this
              state may be off for Power, but the LED could be lit  for  a  System  Fault  reason
              instead.  Refer to the system Technical Product Specification for System Faults.

       -o     Sets all alarms off, including the Chassis ID.

       -x     Causes extra debug messages to be displayed.

       -N nodename
              Nodename  or  IP  address of the remote target system.  If a nodename is specified,
              IPMI LAN interface is used.  Otherwise the local  system  management  interface  is
              used.

       -P/-R rmt_pswd
              Remote password for the nodename given.  The default is a null password.

       -U rmt_user
              Remote username for the nodename given.  The default is a null username.

       -E     Use the remote password from Environment variable IPMI_PASSWORD.

       -F drv_t
              Force  the  driver  type  to one of the followng: imb, va, open, gnu, landesk, lan,
              lan2, lan2i, kcs, smb.  Note that lan2i means lan2 with intelplus.  The default  is
              to detect any available driver type and use it.

       -J     Use   the   specified   LanPlus   cipher   suite  (0  thru  17):  0=none/none/none,
              1=sha1/none/none,   2=sha1/sha1/none,   3=sha1/sha1/cbc128,   4=sha1/sha1/xrc4_128,
              5=sha1/sha1/xrc4_40, 6=md5/none/none, ... 14=md5/md5/xrc4_40.  Default is 3.

       -T     Use  this  IPMI LAN Authentication Type: 0=None, 1=MD2, 2=MD5, 4=Straight Password,
              5=OEM.

       -V     Use this IPMI LAN privilege  level.  1=Callback  level,  2=User  level,  3=Operator
              level, 4=Administrator level (default), 5=OEM level.

       -Y     Yes,  do  prompt  the  user for the IPMI LAN remote password.  Alternatives for the
              password are -E or -P.
