       powerman-devices - Powerman Device Configuration Notes

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.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.

       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".
