       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 Information.

       -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

       -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.
