NAME

       ipmi-raw - execute IPMI commands by hex values

SYNOPSIS

       ipmi-raw [OPTION...] [<lun> <netfn> COMMAND-HEX-BYTES...]

DESCRIPTION

       Ipmi-raw is used to execute IPMI commands by hex values. Hex values may
       be input on the command line, a file via  the  --file  option,  or  via
       stdin if neither of the previous are specified.

       Listed  below  are general IPMI options, tool specific options, trouble
       shooting  information,  workaround  information,  examples,  and  known
       issues. For a general introduction to FreeIPMI please see freeipmi(7).

GENERAL OPTIONS

       The   following  options  are  general  options  for  configuring  IPMI
       communication and executing general tool commands.

       -D IPMIDRIVER, --driver-type=IPMIDRIVER
              Specify the  driver  type  to  use  instead  of  doing  an  auto
              selection.   The  currently  available outofband drivers are LAN
              and LAN_2_0, which perform IPMI 1.5 and IPMI  2.0  respectively.
              The  currently available inband drivers are KCS, SSIF, OPENIPMI,
              SUNBMC, and INTELDCMI.

       --disable-auto-probe
              Do not probe in-band IPMI devices for default settings.

       --driver-address=DRIVER-ADDRESS
              Specify the in-band driver address to be  used  instead  of  the
              probed  value. DRIVER-ADDRESS should be prefixed with "0x" for a
              hex value and '0' for an octal value.

       --driver-device=DEVICE
              Specify the in-band driver device path to be used instead of the
              probed path.

       --register-spacing=REGISTER-SPACING
              Specify  the  in-band  driver  register  spacing  instead of the
              probed value. Argument is in bytes (i.e. 32bit register  spacing
              = 4)

       --target-channel-number=CHANNEL-NUMBER
              Specify  the  in-band  driver target channel number to send IPMI
              requests to.

       --target-slave-address=SLAVE-ADDRESS
              Specify the in-band driver target  slave  number  to  send  IPMI
              requests to.

       -h                                             IPMIHOST1,IPMIHOST2,...,
       --hostname=IPMIHOST1[:PORT],IPMIHOST2[:PORT],...
              Specify  the  remote  host(s)  to  communicate  with.   Multiple
              hostnames  may  be  separated  by comma or may be specified in a
              range format; see HOSTRANGED SUPPORT below. An optional port can
              be  specified  with  each  host,  which  may  be  useful in port
              forwarding or similar situations.

       -u USERNAME, --username=USERNAME
              Specify the username to use when authenticating with the  remote
              host.   If  not  specified,  a null (i.e. anonymous) username is
              assumed. The required user privilege  will  depend  on  the  raw
              commands executed.

       -p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
              Specify the password to use when authenticationg with the remote
              host.  If not specified, a null  password  is  assumed.  Maximum
              password length is 16 for IPMI 1.5 and 20 for IPMI 2.0.

       -P, --password-prompt
              Prompt  for  password  to  avoid  possibility  of  listing it in
              process lists.

       -k K_G, --k-g=K_G
              Specify the K_g BMC key to  use  when  authenticating  with  the
              remote  host  for  IPMI  2.0.  If  not  specified, a null key is
              assumed. To input the key in hexadecimal form, prefix the string
              with  '0x'.  E.g.,  the key 'abc' can be entered with the either
              the string 'abc' or the string '0x616263'

       -K, --k-g-prompt
              Prompt for k-g to avoid possibility of  listing  it  in  process
              lists.

       --session-timeout=MILLISECONDS
              Specify  the  session timeout in milliseconds. Defaults to 20000
              milliseconds (20 seconds) if not specified.

       --retransmission-timeout=MILLISECONDS
              Specify  the  packet  retransmission  timeout  in  milliseconds.
              Defaults  to  1000 milliseconds (1 second) if not specified. The
              retransmission  timeout  cannot  be  larger  than  the   session
              timeout.

       -a AUTHENTICATION-TYPE, --authentication-type=AUTHENTICATION-TYPE
              Specify  the  IPMI 1.5 authentication type to use. The currently
              available authentication types are NONE,  STRAIGHT_PASSWORD_KEY,
              MD2, and MD5. Defaults to MD5 if not specified.

       -I CIPHER-SUITE-ID, --cipher-suite-id=CIPHER-SUITE-ID
              Specify the IPMI 2.0 cipher suite ID to use. The Cipher Suite ID
              identifies   a   set   of   authentication,    integrity,    and
              confidentiality  algorithms  to  use for IPMI 2.0 communication.
              The authentication algorithm identifies the algorithm to use for
              session  setup, the integrity algorithm identifies the algorithm
              to use for session packet signatures,  and  the  confidentiality
              algorithm   identifies   the   algorithm   to  use  for  payload
              encryption. Defaults to cipher suite ID 3 if not specified.  The
              following cipher suite ids are currently supported:

              0 - Authentication Algorithm = None; Integrity Algorithm = None;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              1 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA1; Integrity Algorithm  =
              None; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              2  - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA1; Integrity Algorithm =
              HMAC-SHA1-96; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              3 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA1; Integrity Algorithm  =
              HMAC-SHA1-96; Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              6  -  Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-MD5; Integrity Algorithm =
              None; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              7 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-MD5; Integrity  Algorithm  =
              HMAC-MD5-128; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              8  -  Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-MD5; Integrity Algorithm =
              HMAC-MD5-128; Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              11 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-MD5; Integrity Algorithm  =
              MD5-128; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              12  - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-MD5; Integrity Algorithm =
              MD5-128; Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              15 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA256; Integrity Algorithm
              = None; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              16 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA256; Integrity Algorithm
              = HMAC_SHA256_128; Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              17 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA256; Integrity Algorithm
              = HMAC_SHA256_128; Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

       -l PRIVILEGE-LEVEL, --privilege-level=PRIVILEGE-LEVEL
              Specify  the privilege level to be used. The currently available
              privilege levels are USER,  OPERATOR,  and  ADMIN.  Defaults  to
              ADMIN if not specified.

       --config-file=FILE
              Specify an alternate configuration file.

       -W WORKAROUNDS, --workaround-flags=WORKAROUNDS
              Specify   workarounds  to  vendor  compliance  issues.  Multiple
              workarounds can be specified  separated  by  commas.  A  special
              command  line  flag of "none", will indicate no workarounds (may
              be useful for overriding configured defaults).  See  WORKAROUNDS
              below for a list of available workarounds.

       --debug
              Turn on debugging.

       -?, --help
              Output a help list and exit.

       --usage
              Output a usage message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Output the program version and exit.

IPMI-RAW OPTIONS

       The following options are specific to Ipmi-raw.

       --file=CMD-FILE
              Specify a file to read command requests from.

HOSTRANGED OPTIONS

       The  following  options  manipulate  hostranged  output. See HOSTRANGED
       SUPPORT below for additional information on hostranges.

       -B, --buffer-output
              Buffer hostranged output. For each node, buffer standard  output
              until the node has completed its IPMI operation. When specifying
              this option, data may appear to output slower to the user  since
              the  the entire IPMI operation must complete before any data can
              be  output.   See  HOSTRANGED  SUPPORT  below   for   additional
              information.

       -C, --consolidate-output
              Consolidate hostranged output. The complete standard output from
              every node specified will be consolidated  so  that  nodes  with
              identical  output are not output twice. A header will list those
              nodes  with  the  consolidated  output.  When  this  option   is
              specified,  no  output  can be seen until the IPMI operations to
              all nodes has completed. If the user breaks out of  the  program
              early,  all  currently  consolidated  output will be dumped. See
              HOSTRANGED SUPPORT below for additional information.

       -F NUM, --fanout=NUM
              Specify multiple host fanout. A  "sliding  window"  (or  fanout)
              algorithm is used for parallel IPMI communication so that slower
              nodes or timed out nodes will not impede parallel communication.
              The  maximum  number  of  threads  available at the same time is
              limited by the fanout. The default is 64.

       -E, --eliminate
              Eliminate hosts determined as undetected  by  ipmidetect.   This
              attempts  to  remove  the  common  issue of hostranged execution
              timing out due to several nodes being removed from service in  a
              large  cluster.  The  ipmidetectd  daemon must be running on the
              node executing the command.

       --always-prefix
              Always prefix output, even if only  one  host  is  specified  or
              communicating  in-band.  This  option  is  primarily  useful for
              scripting purposes. Option will be ignored if specified with the
              -C option.

HOSTRANGED SUPPORT

       Multiple hosts can be input either as an explicit comma separated lists
       of hosts or a range of hostnames in  the  general  form:  prefix[n-m,l-
       k,...],  where  n  <  m  and  l  < k, etc. The later form should not be
       confused with regular expression character  classes  (also  denoted  by
       []).  For  example, foo[19] does not represent foo1 or foo9, but rather
       represents a degenerate range: foo19.

       This range syntax is meant only as a convenience  on  clusters  with  a
       prefixNN  naming  convention  and specification of ranges should not be
       considered necessary -- the list foo1,foo9 could be specified as  such,
       or by the range foo[1,9].

       Some examples of range usage follow:
           foo[01-05] instead of foo01,foo02,foo03,foo04,foo05
           foo[7,9-10] instead of foo7,foo9,foo10
           foo[0-3] instead of foo0,foo1,foo2,foo3

       As a reminder to the reader, some shells will interpret brackets ([ and
       ]) for pattern matching. Depending on your shell, it may  be  necessary
       to enclose ranged lists within quotes.

       When  multiple  hosts  are  specified  by  the  user,  a thread will be
       executed for each host in parallel up to the configured  fanout  (which
       can  be  adjusted  via the -F option). This will allow communication to
       large numbers of nodes far more quickly than if done in serial.

       By default, standard output from each node  specified  will  be  output
       with  the  hostname  prepended  to  each  line. Although this output is
       readable in many situations, it may  be  difficult  to  read  in  other
       situations.  For  example,  output  from  multiple  nodes  may be mixed
       together. The -B and -C options can be used to change this default.

       In-band IPMI Communication will be used when the  host  "localhost"  is
       specified.  This  allows  the  user  to  add  the  localhost  into  the
       hostranged output.

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING

       Most often, IPMI problems are due to configuration problems.

       IPMI over  LAN  problems  involve  a  misconfiguration  of  the  remote
       machine's  BMC.  Double check to make sure the following are configured
       properly in the remote machine's BMC: IP address, MAC  address,  subnet
       mask,   username,   user  enablement,  user  privilege,  password,  LAN
       privilege, LAN enablement, and allowed authentication type(s). For IPMI
       2.0   connections,   double   check  to  make  sure  the  cipher  suite
       privilege(s) and K_g key are configured  properly.  The  ipmi-config(8)
       tool can be used to check and/or change these configuration settings.

       Inband  IPMI  problems  are  typically  caused by improperly configured
       drivers or non-standard BMCs.

       In addition to the troubleshooting tips below, please  see  WORKAROUNDS
       below  to  also  if  there  are any vendor specific bugs that have been
       discovered and worked around.

       Listed below are many of the common issues  for  error  messages.   For
       additional  support, please e-mail the <freeipmi-users@gnu.org> mailing
       list.

       "username invalid" - The username entered (or a NULL username  if  none
       was  entered)  is  not  available on the remote machine. It may also be
       possible the remote BMC's username configuration is incorrect.

       "password invalid" - The password entered (or a NULL password  if  none
       was  entered)  is not correct. It may also be possible the password for
       the user is not correctly configured on the remote BMC.

       "password verification timeout" - Password verification has timed  out.
       A  "password  invalid"  error  (described  above) or a generic "session
       timeout" (described below) occurred.  During this point in the protocol
       it cannot be differentiated which occurred.

       "k_g  invalid"  -  The  K_g  key entered (or a NULL K_g key if none was
       entered) is not correct. It may also be possible the  K_g  key  is  not
       correctly configured on the remote BMC.

       "privilege level insufficient" - An IPMI command requires a higher user
       privilege than the one authenticated with. Please try  to  authenticate
       with a higher privilege. This may require authenticating to a different
       user which has a higher maximum privilege.

       "privilege level cannot be obtained for  this  user"  -  The  privilege
       level  you  are  attempting  to  authenticate  with  is higher than the
       maximum allowed for this user. Please try again with a lower privilege.
       It  may also be possible the maximum privilege level allowed for a user
       is not configured properly on the remote BMC.

       "authentication type unavailable for attempted privilege level"  -  The
       authentication  type you wish to authenticate with is not available for
       this privilege level. Please try again with an alternate authentication
       type  or  alternate  privilege  level.  It  may  also  be  possible the
       available authentication  types  you  can  authenticate  with  are  not
       correctly configured on the remote BMC.

       "cipher  suite  id  unavailable"  -  The  cipher  suite  id you wish to
       authenticate with is not available on the remote BMC. Please try  again
       with  an  alternate  cipher  suite  id.  It  may  also  be possible the
       available cipher suite ids are not correctly configured on  the  remote
       BMC.

       "ipmi  2.0  unavailable"  -  IPMI  2.0 was not discovered on the remote
       machine. Please try to use IPMI 1.5 instead.

       "connection timeout" - Initial IPMI communication failed. A  number  of
       potential errors are possible, including an invalid hostname specified,
       an IPMI IP address cannot be resolved,  IPMI  is  not  enabled  on  the
       remote  server,  the  network  connection  is  bad,  etc. Please verify
       configuration and connectivity.

       "session timeout" - The IPMI session has timed out.  Please  reconnect.
       If this error occurs often, you may wish to increase the retransmission
       timeout. Some remote BMCs are considerably slower than others.

       "device not found" - The specified device could not  be  found.  Please
       check configuration or inputs and try again.

       "driver  timeout"  -  Communication with the driver or device has timed
       out. Please try again.

       "message timeout" - Communication with the driver or device  has  timed
       out. Please try again.

       "BMC  busy"  -  The  BMC  is  currently  busy.  It  may  be  processing
       information or have too many simultaneous sessions  to  manage.  Please
       wait and try again.

       "could  not  find inband device" - An inband device could not be found.
       Please check configuration or specify specific device or driver on  the
       command line.

       "driver timeout" - The inband driver has timed out communicating to the
       local BMC or service processor. The BMC or  service  processor  may  be
       busy or (worst case) possibly non-functioning.

       "internal  IPMI  error" - An IPMI error has occurred that FreeIPMI does
       not know how  to  handle.  Please  e-mail  <freeipmi-users@gnu.org>  to
       report the issue.

WORKAROUNDS

       With  so  many different vendors implementing their own IPMI solutions,
       different vendors may implement their IPMI protocols  incorrectly.  The
       following  describes  a  number  of  workarounds currently available to
       handle discovered compliance issues. When  possible,  workarounds  have
       been implemented so they will be transparent to the user. However, some
       will require the user to specify  a  workaround  be  used  via  the  -W
       option.

       The hardware listed below may only indicate the hardware that a problem
       was discovered on. Newer versions of  hardware  may  fix  the  problems
       indicated  below.  Similar machines from vendors may or may not exhibit
       the same problems. Different vendors may license  their  firmware  from
       the  same  IPMI  firmware  developer,  so  it  may be worthwhile to try
       workarounds listed below even if your motherboard is not listed.

       If you believe your hardware has an additional  compliance  issue  that
       needs  a  workaround  to  be  implemented,  please contact the FreeIPMI
       maintainers on <freeipmi-users@gnu.org> or <freeipmi-devel@gnu.org>.

       assumeio  -  This  workaround  flag  will  assume   inband   interfaces
       communicate  with system I/O rather than being memory-mapped. This will
       work around systems that report invalid base addresses.  Those  hitting
       this  issue  may  see  "device not supported" or "could not find inband
       device" errors.  Issue observed on HP ProLiant DL145 G1.

       spinpoll - This workaround flag will inform some inband  drivers  (most
       notably  the  KCS driver) to spin while polling rather than putting the
       process to sleep. This may significantly improve the wall clock running
       time  of  tools because an operating system scheduler's granularity may
       be much larger than the time it takes to perform a single IPMI  message
       transaction.  However,  by spinning, your system may be performing less
       useful work by not contexting out the tool for a more useful task.

       authcap - This workaround flag will  skip  early  checks  for  username
       capabilities,  authentication  capabilities,  and K_g support and allow
       IPMI authentication to succeed. It  works  around  multiple  issues  in
       which the remote system does not properly report username capabilities,
       authentication capabilities, or K_g status. Those  hitting  this  issue
       may  see  "username  invalid",  "authentication  type  unavailable  for
       attempted privilege level", or "k_g invalid" errors.  Issue observed on
       Asus  P5M2/P5MT-R/RS162-E4/RX4,  Intel  SR1520ML/X38ML,  and  Sun  Fire
       2200/4150/4450 with ELOM.

       nochecksumcheck - This workaround flag will tell FreeIPMI to not  check
       the  checksums  returned  from  IPMI command responses. It works around
       systems that return invalid checksums due to implementation errors, but
       the  packet  is otherwise valid. Users are cautioned on the use of this
       option, as it removes validation of packet integrity  in  a  number  of
       circumstances.  However,  it  is  unlikely  to  be  an  issue  in  most
       situations. Those hitting this  issue  may  see  "connection  timeout",
       "session  timeout",  or "password verification timeout" errors. On IPMI
       1.5 connections, the "noauthcodecheck" workaround may also needed  too.
       Issue   observed  on  Supermicro  X9SCM-iiF,  Supermicro  X9DRi-F,  and
       Supermicro X9DRFR.

       idzero - This workaround flag  will  allow  empty  session  IDs  to  be
       accepted by the client. It works around IPMI sessions that report empty
       session IDs to the client. Those hitting this issue  may  see  "session
       timeout" errors. Issue observed on Tyan S2882 with M3289 BMC.

       unexpectedauth  -  This  workaround flag will allow unexpected non-null
       authcodes to be checked as though they were expected. It  works  around
       an  issue  when  packets contain non-null authentication data when they
       should be  null  due  to  disabled  per-message  authentication.  Those
       hitting  this issue may see "session timeout" errors. Issue observed on
       Dell PowerEdge 2850,SC1425. Confirmed fixed on newer firmware.

       forcepermsg   -   This   workaround   flag   will   force   per-message
       authentication  to  be  used no matter what is advertised by the remote
       system. It works around an issue  when  per-message  authentication  is
       advertised  as  disabled  on  the  remote  system,  but  it is actually
       required for the protocol. Those hitting this issue  may  see  "session
       timeout" errors.  Issue observed on IBM eServer 325.

       endianseq  -  This  workaround flag will flip the endian of the session
       sequence numbers to allow the session to continue  properly.  It  works
       around  IPMI  1.5  session  sequence numbers that are the wrong endian.
       Those hitting this  issue  may  see  "session  timeout"  errors.  Issue
       observed  on  some  Sun  ILOM  1.0/2.0  (depends  on  service processor
       endian).

       noauthcodecheck - This workaround flag will tell FreeIPMI to not  check
       the  authentication  codes returned from IPMI 1.5 command responses. It
       works around systems that return invalid authentication  codes  due  to
       hashing  or  implementation  errors.  Users are cautioned on the use of
       this option, as  it  removes  an  authentication  check  verifying  the
       validity  of a packet. However, in most organizations, this is unlikely
       to be a security issue. Those hitting this issue  may  see  "connection
       timeout", "session timeout", or "password verification timeout" errors.
       Issue  observed  on  Xyratex   FB-H8-SRAY,   Intel   Windmill,   Quanta
       Winterfell, and Wiwynn Windmill.

       intel20  - This workaround flag will work around several Intel IPMI 2.0
       authentication issues. The issues covered include padding of usernames,
       and  password  truncation  if  the  authentication  algorithm  is HMAC-
       MD5-128. Those hitting this issue may see "username invalid", "password
       invalid",  or  "k_g  invalid" errors. Issue observed on Intel SE7520AF2
       with Intel Server Management Module (Professional Edition).

       supermicro20 - This workaround flag will work around several Supermicro
       IPMI  2.0  authentication  issues  on  motherboards  w/  Peppercon IPMI
       firmware.  The  issues  covered   include   handling   invalid   length
       authentication  codes.  Those  hitting  this  issue  may  see "password
       invalid"  errors.   Issue  observed  on  Supermicro  H8QME  with  SIMSO
       daughter card. Confirmed fixed on newerver firmware.

       sun20 - This workaround flag will work work around several Sun IPMI 2.0
       authentication issues. The issues covered include invalid lengthed hash
       keys,  improperly  hashed keys, and invalid cipher suite records. Those
       hitting this issue may see "password invalid" or  "bmc  error"  errors.
       Issue  observed  on Sun Fire 4100/4200/4500 with ILOM.  This workaround
       automatically includes the "opensesspriv" workaround.

       opensesspriv - This workaround flag will slightly alter FreeIPMI's IPMI
       2.0 connection protocol to workaround an invalid hashing algorithm used
       by the remote system. The privilege level sent during the Open  Session
       stage of an IPMI 2.0 connection is used for hashing keys instead of the
       privilege level sent during the RAKP1 connection stage.  Those  hitting
       this  issue may see "password invalid", "k_g invalid", or "bad rmcpplus
       status code" errors.  Issue observed on Sun  Fire  4100/4200/4500  with
       ILOM, Inventec 5441/Dell Xanadu II, Supermicro X8DTH, Supermicro X8DTG,
       Intel S5500WBV/Penguin Relion 700, Intel S2600JF/Appro 512X, and Quanta
       QSSC-S4R/Appro  GB812X-CN.  This  workaround is automatically triggered
       with the "sun20" workaround.

       integritycheckvalue - This workaround flag will work around an  invalid
       integrity  check  value  during  an IPMI 2.0 session establishment when
       using Cipher Suite ID 0. The integrity check value should be 0  length,
       however  the  remote motherboard responds with a non-empty field. Those
       hitting this issue may see "k_g  invalid"  errors.  Issue  observed  on
       Supermicro  X8DTG,  Supermicro X8DTU, and Intel S5500WBV/Penguin Relion
       700, and Intel S2600JF/Appro 512X.

       No IPMI 1.5 Support - Some motherboards that support IPMI 2.0 have been
       found  to  not support IPMI 1.5. Those hitting this issue may see "ipmi
       2.0 unavailable" or "connection timeout"  errors.  This  issue  can  be
       worked  around  by  using  IPMI  2.0  instead of IPMI 1.5 by specifying
       --driver-type=LAN_2_0. Issue observed on HP Proliant DL 145.

EXAMPLES

       # ipmi-raw 0 6 01

       Execute command 0x01 with LUN 0x0 and NETFN 0x06 on the local machine.

       # ipmi-raw -h ahost -u myusername -p mypassword 0 6 01

       Execute command 0x01 with LUN 0x0 and NETFN 0x06 on  a  remote  machine
       using IPMI over LAN.

       # ipmi-raw -h mycluster[0-127] -u myusername -p mypassword 0 6 01

       Execute command 0x01 with LUN 0x0 and NETFN 0x06 across a cluster using
       IPMI over LAN.

       # ipmi-raw

       Read LUN, NETFN, command and request data from standard input.

       # ipmi-raw -f command-file

       Read LUN/FN, command and  request  data  from  given  file  instead  of
       standard input.

       # ipmi-raw < command-file

       Read LUN, NETFN, command and request data from file as standard input.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Upon  successful  execution, exit status is 0. On error, exit status is
       1.

       If multiple hosts are specified for communication, the exit status is 0
       if  and  only  if  all targets successfully execute. Otherwise the exit
       status is 1.

KNOWN ISSUES

       On older operating systems, if you input your username,  password,  and
       other  potentially  security  relevant information on the command line,
       this information may be discovered by other users when using tools like
       the  ps(1) command or looking in the /proc file system. It is generally
       more secure to input password information with options like the  -P  or
       -K  options.  Configuring security relevant information in the FreeIPMI
       configuration file would also  be  an  appropriate  way  to  hide  this
       information.

       In  order  to  prevent  brute force attacks, some BMCs will temporarily
       "lock up" after a number of remote authentication errors. You may  need
       to  wait awhile in order to this temporary "lock up" to pass before you
       may authenticate again.
