       ipmiutil_dcmi - handle DCMI functions


       ipmiutil dcmi [-admsx -NUPREFTVY] <function>


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

       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 used.

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

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

       -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

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

       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.
