       ipmiutil_hpm - PICMG HPM.1 Upgrade Agent


       ipmiutil hpm [-mxNUPREFJTVY] parameters


       This ipmiutil hpm subcommand updates HPM components using PICMG HPM.1 file

       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.

       -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.

       -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

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

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

       -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.
