DESCRIPTION

       Following are notes on configuring various remote power controllers and
       related equipment supported by PowerMan.

CYCLADES TS-1000

       A cyclades TS-1000 configured so that PowerMan can connect  to  serial-
       port-based  remote  power  control  devices  using  telnet is set up as
       follows:

       Attach console cable between laptop running minicom and console port at
       9600,8n1 and authenticate with default account: root/tslinux.

       Edit the following files (assumes no off-subnet routing or name service
       required):

       /etc/portslave/portslave.conf
              conf.eth_ip      192.168.54.151
              conf.eth_mask    255.255.255.0
              conf.dhcp_client 0
              #
              all.speed        9600
              all.datasize     8
              all.stopbits     1
              all.parity       none
              all.flow         none
              all.dcd          0
              all.DTR_reset    1
              all.protocol     socket_server
              all.authtype     none
              #all.ipno
              all.socket_port  7001+
              #
              s1.tty           ttyS1
              s2.tty           ttyS2
              s3.tty           ttyS3
              s4.tty           ttyS4
              s5.tty           ttyS5
              s6.tty           ttyS6
              s7.tty           ttyS7
              s8.tty           ttyS8
              s9.tty           ttyS9
              s10.tty          ttyS10
              s11.tty          ttyS11
              s12.tty          ttyS12
              s13.tty          ttyS13
              s14.tty          ttyS14
              s15.tty          ttyS15
              s16.tty          ttyS16

       /etc/hostname
              cyclades-ts-test

       /etc/hosts
              127.0.0.1        localhost
              192.168.54.151   cycaldes-ts-test

       Next, run signal_ras hup and saveconf  and  finally,  power  cycle  the
       unit.   It  should  be  possible  to  configure  PowerMan to connect to
       hostname:7001 for port 1, hostname:7002 for port 2, etc..

BAYTECH RPC-3 (non-NC models) (network port 23)

       Attach console cable between laptop running minicom and console port at
       9600,8n1.  Main menu should display.

       From main menu, select 3)...Configuration, then set IP parameters.

       From  Configuration  menu,  select  5)...Access,  then  disable command
       confirmation, set admin password to  baytech,  and  enable  prompt  for
       password.  Exit Access menu by typing return.

       From  Configuration menu, select 6)...Outlets.  Ensure that 1)...Outlet
       Status display is disabled, and 2)...Command Confirmation is  disabled.

       Exit  back  to  main  menu by typing return twice, then answer Y to the
       Accept changes? prompt.

BAYTECH RPC-28-NC (serial 9600,8n1)

       confirmation.   Select  4)...Enable/Disable  Status  Menu  and  disable
       status menu

LNXI ICEBOX V2 (network port 1010)

       Attach console cable between laptop running minicom and console port at
       9600,8n1.  Enter default password of icebox.

       net ip 192.168.54.153
              Sets IP address.

       net mask 255.255.255.0
              Sets network mask

       net gw 192.168.54.254
              Set  default  gateway.   Note:  this  may  need  to be set to an
              address in the same subnet as the ice box regardless of  whether
              it is to be used or not.

       reboot Reboots the icebox.

LNXI ICEBOX V3 (network port 1010)

       Attach console cable between laptop running minicom and console port at
       9600,8n1.    Authenticate   with    default    account    admin/icebox.
       Configuration is the same as the V2 ICE BOX.

APC MASTERSWITCH MODEL AP9606 (network port 23)

       Attach  console  cable  between laptop running minicom and console port
       (may be labeled ‘‘advanced port’’)  at  2400,8n1.   Press  enter,  then
       authenticate with default account apc/apc.

       Choose Network from main menu.

       Choose TCP/IP from Network menu, then diable BOOTP, and accept changes.
       Set the IP address,  subnet  mask,  and  default  gateway,  and  accept
       changes.

       Pres ESC until the main menu appears, then select Logout.

WTI RPS10 (serial 9600,8n1)

       Set  address  of  box  using  the  rotary dial on the back.  The Master
       module must be set to address 0.  Slave modules may be  set  to  unique
       values  from  1-9.   The  address  corresponds  to the plug name in the
       powerman.conf file.

       Setup switches on each module should be set to 9600 baud (sw1 down),  5
       sec toggle delay (sw2 down), power up to previous state (sw3 down).

WTI NPS (network port 23)

       Attach console cable between laptop running minicom and console port at
       9600,8n1.  Try password "wti" if prompted.

       Select /N - View/set network  parameters,  then  set  the  IP  address,
       subnet mask, and gateway.

       Select  /G  -  General  paramters,  then  disable command confirmation,
       enable command echo, and set disconnect timeout to  the  maximum  value
       (30 minutes).

       Set password to "wti".

CYCLADES PM8 and PM8i (serial 9600,8n1)

       Attach  console  cable  between  laptop running minicom and serial port
       9600,8n1.   Press  enter,  then  authenticate  with   default   account
       admin/pm8.

       Run factory_defaults command.

       The PM8 can run in a mode where it can be daisy chained from a Cyclades
       terminal server.  This mode is not yet supported by PowerMan.

Sun ILOM

       The dedicated ILOM serial port (SER MGT RJ-45) runs at 9600,8n1 and the
       default  login is root/changeme.  Use a Sun/NETRA/Cisco RJ45 adapter to
       connect to Cyclades TS.

       The dedicated ILOM ethernet port (NET MGT RJ-45) can be configured  for
       DHCP  (the  default) or static IP settings.  To configure static IP via
       the ILOM serial port, run:

                  cd /SP/network
                  set pendingipdiscovery=static
                  set pendingipaddress=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
                  set pendingipnetmask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
                  set pendingipgateway=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
                  set commitpending=true

       The ILOM network configuration can alternatively  be  set  up  via  the
       system  BIOS setup screen.  Hit F2 during boot to access BIOS setup, go
       to the "Advanced" tab, select "IPMI 2.0  configuration"  and  "set  LAN
       configuration".  Make your changes and commit them.

IPMI (via Ipmipower)

       IPMI  based power control is supported via FreeIPMI’s ipmipower.  It is
       configured by running ipmipower in coprocess mode in powerman.conf

       Due to semantic differences between IPMI and traditional  remote  power
       control  devices,  some  power  control operations may not seem to work
       properly by default with Powerman.  For  example,  several  IPMI  power
       control  operations  are allowed to return prior to the operation fully
       completing.  A machine that has been powered off by IPMI may  be  later
       queried  as  being  powered  on.  This is because IPMI may successfully
       return from a power off operation to the  user,  but  the  machine  may
       elect  to  power  itself  off  at a later time.  In order to get around
       several of these issues, it is  recommended  that  the  user  configure
       ipmipower  with the --wait-until-on and --wait-until-off options.  With
       these options set, ipmipower will behave more like  traditional  remote
       power control devices.

       In  order  to  hide IPMI usernames and passwords from ps(1), it is also
       recommended that the user configure the username and password  (and  at
       your  discretion,  the  above options) using the FreeIPMI configuration
       file and not in the  powerman.conf  file.   Please  see  the  ipmipower
       section of the freeipmi.conf(5) manpage for more information.

       Because  IPMI  usernames  and  passwords  are  sensitive,  the  default
       FreeIPMI configuration file is only  readable  and  writable  by  root.
       This  may  conflict  with  the  default powermand daemon settings, thus
       making the configuration file non-readable.  Administrators may wish to
       run  the  powermand  daemon  as  root  or adjust the configuration file
       permissions as needed.

HP iLO

       The  "hpilo"  script  supports  the  Integrated  Lights-Out  management
       processor  in  HP ProLiant servers, including both rack-mount and blade
       servers.  Configure the iLO to allow Telnet access on port 23, and  add
       a  user  "Admin"  with  password  "Admin".   You may have to reduce the
       minimum password length on the Administration/Access/Options tab of the
       web interface.

HP MP

       The "hpmp" script supports the Management Processor in HP non-cellular,
       rack-mount Integrity servers.  Configure the MP to allow Telnet  access
       with  the  "CM:SA"  command,  and make sure there’s a user "Admin" with
       password "Admin".  If the MP enforces a minimum  password  length,  you
       may  have  to  use "uc -all default" to restore the default Admin/Admin
       user.

HP MP (cellular)

       The "hpmpcell" script supports the Management Processor in HP mid-range
       cellular  servers.   Configure  the  MP to allow Telnet access with the
       "CM:SA" command, and make sure there’s a  user  "Admin"  with  password
       "Admin".

HP MP (Superdome)

       The "hpmpdome" script supports the Management Processor in HP Superdome
       servers.  Configure the MP to allow  Telnet  access  with  the  "CM:SA"
       command, and make sure there’s a user "Admin" with password "Admin".

HP MP (Integrity blades)

       The   "hpmpblade"  script  supports  the  Management  Processor  in  HP
       Integrity blade servers.  Configure the MP to allow Telnet access  with
       the "CM:SA" command, and make sure there’s a user "Admin" with password
       "Admin".
