NAME

       freeipmi.conf - specify default values to FreeIPMI

DESCRIPTION

       The  FreeIPMI  configuration  file can be used to set alternate default
       values to many FreeIPMI tools so values don't have to be configured  on
       the  command line.  This allows users to avoid typing in a long list of
       command line options everytime a command is executed. It  can  also  be
       used to hide usernames, passwords, and other sensitive information from
       the ps(1) command.

       Currently, the tools that can be configured with the configuration file
       are:  bmc-config(8), bmc-device(8), bmc-info(8), bmc-watchdog(8), ipmi-
       chassis(8), ipmi-chassis-config(8), ipmi-fru(8), ipmi-oem(8), ipmi-pef-
       config(8).   ipmi-raw(8),  ipmi-sel(8),  ipmi-sensors(8), ipmi-sensors-
       config(8), ipmiconsole(8), ipmimonitoring(8), and ipmipower(8).

       By default, the configuration file is stored at /etc/freeipmi.conf. But
       users  may  select  a  different configuration file at the command line
       with the --config-file option.

       Values specified on the command line override the configuration  values
       specified in the configuration file.

FORMAT

       The  configuration  options  that can be specified in the configuration
       file are listed below. Each configuration option must be  listed  on  a
       separate  line.  Arguments for an option are separated by any amount of
       whitespace.  Multiple  arguments  are  also  separated  by  whitespace.
       Comments  can  be  marked  by using the pound sign ("#") character, and
       lines can be continued on the next using backslash ("\").

       Note that it is possible to  list  the  username,  password  and  other
       potentially  sensitive  information  in the configuration file. If this
       data is stored in a configuration file,  system  administrators  should
       limit access to this file.

GENERAL OPTIONS

       The  following  options  are  options generally available to all tools,
       although specific  options  may  be  ignored  by  some.  (For  example,
       ipmiconsole(8)  and  ipmipower(8) do not perform in-band communication,
       therefore they would ignore in-band  communication  options.  Similarly
       bmc-watchdog(8)  does  not perform out-of-band communication, therefore
       it would ignore all out-of-band options).
