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

       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

       -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.


       ipmiutil sel
       Shows the IPMI System Event Log entries.

       ipmiutil wdt
       Shows the watchdog timer values.
