       ipmiutil_health- show IPMI health


       ipmiutil health [-ifhglmnopqsx -N node -U user -P/-R pswd -EFJTVY]


       ipmiutil health is a program that uses IPMI commands to show the health
       of the BMC.  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.

       -c     Show canonical, delimited output.

       -f     Show the FRUSDR version also.

       -g     Show the IPMI GUID of this system.   The  GUID  is  a  read-only
              unique identifier.

       -h     Check the health of the HotSwap Controller also.

       -l     Show the IPMI LAN channel statistics also.

       -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.

       -n string
              Set  the  System  Name  to  this  string  in  the  IPMI   System

       -o string
              Set  the  Primary  Operating  System  to this string in the IPMI
              System Information.

       -p 1   Set the chassis Power  restore  policy,  governing  the  desired
              behavior  when power was lost and is restored.  Values: 0 = stay
              off, 1 = last state, 2 = always on.

       -q string
              Set the Secondary Operating System to this string  in  the  IPMI
              System Information.

       -s     Show the IPMI Session information also.

       -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.

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

       -U rmt_user
              Remote username 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.
