NAME

       ipmctl-change-device-passphrase - Changes the security passphrase on DCPMM on supported OS

SYNOPSIS

       ipmctl set [OPTIONS] -dimm [TARGETS] Passphrase=(string) NewPassphrase=(string)
       ConfirmPassphrase=(string)

DESCRIPTION

       Changes the security passphrase on one or more DCPMMs.

           Note
           This command is subject to OS Vendor (OSV) support. It will return "Not Supported."

OPTIONS

       -h, -help
           Displays help for the command.

       -ddrt
           Used to specify DDRT as the desired transport protocol for the current invocation of
           ipmctl.

       -smbus
           Used to specify SMBUS as the desired transport protocol for the current invocation of
           ipmctl.

           Note
           The -ddrt and -smbus options are mutually exclusive and may not be used together.

       -master
           Changes the master passphrase. Valid only if master passphrase is enabled on specified
           DCPMMs (see MasterPassphraseEnabled attribute in section [Show Device]).

       -default
           Use this option when the current master passphrase is set to the default value. Valid
           only if used along with the -master option. May not be combined with the Passphrase
           property.

       -source (path)
           File path to a local file containing the new passphrase (1-32 characters).

           Note
           The file does not need to contain the ConfirmPassphrase property

TARGETS

       -dimm [DimmIDs]
           Changes the passphrase on specific DCPMMs by supplying one or more comma separated
           DCPMM identifiers. However, this is not recommended as it may put the system in an
           undesirable state. The default is to change the passphrase on all manageable DCPMMs.

PROPERTIES

       Passphrase
           The current passphrase (1-32 characters). For better passphrase protection, specify an
           empty string (e.g., Passphrase="") to be prompted for the current passphrase or to use
           a file containing the passphrases with the source option.

       NewPassphrase
           The new passphrase (1-32 characters). For better passphrase protection, specify an
           empty string (e.g., NewPassphrase="") to be prompted for the passphrase or to use a
           file containing the passphrase with the source option.

       ConfirmPassphrase
           Confirmation of the new passphrase (1-32 character and must match NewPassphrase). For
           better passphrase protection, specify an empty string (e.g., ConfirmPassphrase="") to
           be prompted for the passphrase or to use a file containing the passphrase with the
           source option.

EXAMPLES

       Changes the passphrase from mypassphrase to mynewpassphrase on all DCPMMs.

       ipmctl set -dimm Passphrase=mypassphrase NewPassphrase=mynewpassphrase
        ConfirmPassphrase=mynewpassphrase

       Changes the passphrase on all DCPMMs by having the CLI prompt for the current and new
       passphrases.

       ipmctl set -dimm Passphrase="" NewPassphrase="" ConfirmPassphrase=""

       Changes the passphrase on all DCPMMs by supplying the current and new passphrases from the
       specified file. In this example, the format of the file would be:

       #ascii
       Passphrase=myOldPassphrase
       NewPassphrase=myNewPassphrase

       ipmctl set -source passphrase.file -dimm Passphrase="" NewPassphrase=""
       ConfirmPassphrase=""

       Changes the default master passphrase to masterpassphrase on all DCPMMs.

       ipmctl set -master -default -dimm NewPassphrase=masterpassphrase ConfirmPassphrase=
       masterpassphrase

       Changes the master passphrase from masterpassphrase to newmasterpassphrase on all DCPMMs.

       ipmctl set -master -dimm Passphrase=masterpassphrase NewPassphrase=newmasterpassphrase
       ConfirmPassphrase=newmasterpassphrase

LIMITATIONS

       In order to successfully execute this command:

       ·   The caller must have the appropriate privileges.

       ·   The specified DCPMM must be manageable by the host software, have security enabled and
           not be in the "Frozen" or "Exceeded" lock states.

       Command is subject to OS Vendor (OSV) support. If OSV does not provide support, command
       will return "Not Supported."

RETURN DATA

       If empty strings are provided for the passphrase properties and the source option is not
       included, the user will be prompted (once for all DCPMM) to enter the current passphrase,
       then again for the new passphrase and then again to confirm the new passphrase as
       described below. The passphrase characters are hidden.

       Current passphrase: ****

       For each DIMM, the CLI will indicate the status of the passphrase change operation. If a
       failure occurs when updating the passphrase on multiple DCPMMs, the process will exit and
       not continue updating the remaining DCPMMs.

SAMPLE OUTPUT

       Change passphrase on DIMM (DimmID): Success

       Change passphrase on DIMM (DimmID): Error (Code)-(Description)
