NAME

       ipmiutil_reset - perform a hardware reset on the system

SYNOPSIS

       ipmiutil  reset  [-bcdDefhijmnoprsuwxy  -N  node  -U  user  -P/-R  pswd
       -EFJTVY]

DESCRIPTION

       ipmiutil reset is a program  that  uses  IPMI  commands  to  perform  a
       hardware  reset  of  the  chassis,  or boot to a specific device.  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.

OPTIONS

       Command line options are described below.

       -c     Power Cycle the system chassis

       -d     Power Down the system chassis

       -n     Send NMI to the system

       -u     Power Up the system chassis

       -r     Hard Reset the system chassis

       -D     Do a soft shutdown of the OS, and then power  down.   Note  that
              remote  soft shutdown (-D -N) for Intel S5000 baseboard requires
              ipmiutil getevt -a running on the target server.

       -o     Do a soft shutdown of the OS, and then reset.  Note that  remote
              soft  shutdown  (-o  -N)  for  Intel  S5000  baseboard  requires
              ipmiutil getevt -a running on the target server.

       -k     Do a cold reset to restart the BMC firmware.

       -m 002000s
              Perform these function for a specific MC (e.g. bus  00,  sa  20,
              lun  00).   The  trailing  character,  if present, indicates SMI
              addressing if 's', or IPMB addressing if 'i' or not present.

       -b     Do a hard reset and reboot to the  BIOS  Setup  menu,  for  this
              reboot only.

       -e     Do  a  hard  reset to EFI, if IPMI EFI boot is enabled, for this
              reboot only.

       -f     Do a hard reset to Floppy/Removable, for this reboot only.

       -h     Do a hard reset to a Hard Disk, for this reboot only.

       -i     Set the boot Initiator mailbox string, usually for PXE use.  The
              string must be less than 78 characters.

       -j     Set the IANA number used for the boot Initiator mailbox string.

       -p     Do  a hard reset and network boot to PXE server, for this reboot
              only.

       -s     Do a hard reset and reboot to the Service/Diagnostic  Partition,
              for  this  reboot  only.   Reboots  to the default if no service
              partition is configured.

       -v     Do a hard reset to DVD/CDROM Media, for this reboot only.

       -w     Wait for BMC ready after a reset before exiting the utility.

       -x     Causes extra debug messages to be displayed.

       -y     Yes, try to persist any boot  options  used  [-befhprsv].   This
              requires  the IPMI firmware to ask the BIOS to change boot order
              settings, so it  may  not  be  supported  by  all  BMC  firmware
              vendors.

       -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
              password.

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

       -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.
