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.

       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".
