       ipmiutil_dcmi - handle DCMI functions


       ipmiutil dcmi [-admsx -NUPREFTVY] <function>


       This  ipmiutil  dcmi  subcommand  handles  DCMI  command  functions  according to the DCMI

       This utility can use either the /dev/ipmi0 driver from OpenIPMI, the /dev/imb driver  from
       Intel,  the  /dev/ipmikcs  driver  from  valinux,  direct  user-space IOs, or the IPMI LAN
       interface if -N.


       Command line options are described below.

       -a string
              Set the DCMI Asset Tag to this string.

       -d string
              Set the DCMI MC ID to this string.

       -m 002000
              Target a specific MC (e.g. bus 00, sa 20, lun 00).  This could be used for PICMG or
              ATCA  blade  systems.  The trailing character, if present, indicates SMI addressing
              if 's', or IPMB addressing if 'i' or not present.

       -s     When getting info, also get the DCMI sensor information.

       -x     Causes extra debug messages to be displayed.

       -N nodename
              Nodename or IP address of the remote target system.  If a  nodename  is  specified,
              IPMI  LAN  interface  is  used.  Otherwise the local system management interface is

       -U rmt_user
              Remote username for the nodename given.  The default is a null username.

       -P/-R rmt_pswd
              Remote password for the nodename given.  The default is a null password.

       -E     Use the remote password from Environment variable IPMI_PASSWORD.

       -F drv_t
              Force the driver type to one of the followng: imb, va,  open,  gnu,  landesk,  lan,
              lan2,  lan2i, kcs, smb.  Note that lan2i means lan2 with intelplus.  The default is
              to detect any available driver type and use it.

       -J     Use  the  specified  LanPlus  cipher   suite   (0   thru   17):   0=none/none/none,
              1=sha1/none/none,   2=sha1/sha1/none,   3=sha1/sha1/cbc128,   4=sha1/sha1/xrc4_128,
              5=sha1/sha1/xrc4_40, 6=md5/none/none, ... 14=md5/md5/xrc4_40.  Default is 3.

       -T     Use a specified IPMI LAN Authentication  Type:  0=None,  1=MD2,  2=MD5,  4=Straight
              Password, 5=OEM.

       -V     Use  a  specified  IPMI  LAN  privilege  level.  1=Callback  level,  2=User  level,
              3=Operator level, 4=Administrator level (default), 5=OEM level.

       -Y     Yes, do prompt the user for the IPMI LAN remote  password.   Alternatives  for  the
              password are -E or -P.


       info   Get  DCMI  Capabilities,  MC  ID, and Asset Tag. This is the default function if no
              function was specified.

       power  Get DCMI Power reading and DCMI Power limit, if supported in the DCMI capabilties.

       power set_limit
              Set Power limit

       power set_action <action>
              Set Power limit exception action (where action = no_action | power_off | log_sel)

       power set_correction
              Set Power limit correction time (in ms)

       power set_sample
              Set Power limit sampling period (in sec)

       power activate
              Activate Power limit

       power deactivate
              Deactivate Power limit

              Get/Set DCMI Thermal parameters.  This requires DCMI 1.5 support.

       config Get/Set DCMI Configuration parameters.  This requires DCMI 1.5 support.

       help   Show the help (usage) message


       ipmiutil dcmi info -s
       Gets DCMI information, plus DCMI sensor information

       ipmiutil dcmi -N -U root -P pswd
       Gets DCMI information over IPMI LAN.
