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).
