       ipmiutil <command> [-x -NUPREFJTVY] [other command options]


       This  utility performs various IPMI functions.   Each of the individual
       commands in the ipmiutil project can be invoked via this  meta-command.

          dcmi     get/set DCMI parameters
          discover    discover all IPMI servers on this LAN
          ekanalyzer   run  FRU-EKeying analyzer on FRU files (deprecated, see
          events   decode IPMI events and display them
          firewall show/set firmware firewall functions
          fru      show decoded FRU inventory data, write asset tag
          fwum     OEM firmware update manager extensions
          getevt   get IPMI events and display them, event daemon

       For man pages on each command, its man page is named  "i<command>",  or
       refer to SEE ALSO below.

       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 is used.


       Command  options are described in the man page for each command.  Below
       are a few of the common options.

       -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.


       ipmiutil sel
       Shows the IPMI System Event Log entries.

       ipmiutil wdt
