       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

           ·   "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
               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.

           The test name. One of:

           ·   "Quick"

           ·   "Config"

           ·   "Security"

           ·   "FW"

           The severity of the error. One of:

           ·   "Ok"

           ·   "Warning"

           ·   "Failed"

           ·   "Aborted"

                   NOTE: State is promoted to the highest severity result from the test group.

           A free form textual description of the error.
