       ipmiutil_fwum - Update IPMC using Kontron OEM Firmware Update Manager


       ipmiutil fwum [-mixNUPREFJTVY] parameters


       This  ipmiutil  fwum subcommand updates IPMC firmware using Kontron OEM
       Firmware Update Manager.

       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.

       -i 00  This option specifies a specific FRU  ID  to  show.   The  input
              value  should be in hex (0b, 1a, etc.), as shown from the sensor
              SDR output.  The default FRU ID is zero (0).

       -m 002000
              Show FRU for 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.

       -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.
