ipmctl-run-diagnostic - Runs a diagnostic test
ipmctl start [OPTIONS] -diagnostic (Quick|Config|Security|FW) -dimm(DIMMIDs)
Runs a diagnostic test.
-h, -help Displays help for the command. -o (text|nvmxml), -output (text|nvmxml) Changes the output format. One of: "text" (default) or "nvmxml".
-diagnostic (Quick|Config|Security|FW) Run a specific test by supplying its name. By default all tests are run. One of: · "Quick" - This test verifies that the DCPMM host mailbox is accessible and that basic health indicators can be read and are currently reporting acceptable values. · "Config" - This test verifies that the BIOS platform configuration matches the installed hardware and the platform configuration conforms to best known practices. · "Security" - This test verifies that all DCPMMs have a consistent security state. It’s a best practice to enable security on all DCPMMs rather than just some. · "FW" - This test verifies that all DCPMMs of a given model have consistent FW installed and other FW modifiable attributes are set in accordance with best practices. Note that the test does not have a means of verifying that the installed FW is the optimal version for a given DCPMM model just that it’s been consistently applied across the system. -dimm [(DimmIDS)] Runs a diagnostic test on specific DCPMMs by optionally supplying one or more comma-separated DCPMM identifiers. The default is to run the specified tests on all manageable DCPMMs. Only valid for the Quick diagnostic test.
Runs all diagnostics. ipmctl start -diagnostic Runs the quick check diagnostic on DCPMM 0x0001 ipmctl start -diagnostic Quick -dimm 0x0001
If a DCPMM is unmanageable, then Quick test will report the reason, while Config, Security and FW tests will skip unmanageable DCPMMs.
Each diagnostic generates one or more log messages. A successful test generates a single log message per DCPMM indicating that no errors were found. A failed test might generate multiple log messages each highlighting a specific error with all the relevant details. Each log contains the following information. TestName The test name. One of: · "Quick" · "Config" · "Security" · "FW" State The severity of the error. One of: · "Ok" · "Warning" · "Failed" · "Aborted" NOTE: State is promoted to the highest severity result from the test group. Message A free form textual description of the error.
