IPMI Madness

Here are some commands for reference that my friend Shadd sent me.  Some of them are IPMI, while the others are dmidecode commands to get system information.  Thanks Shadd!

Are the system fans are all working?  Or just not moving?

BMC firmware level check

Clear the BMC Error Log cluster wide

Check the Fan Controller Board firmware level

Check why each node rebooted last

Check PSU states

C6100 and IPMItool on individual nodes
Identify chassis with beacon light

Serial Over Lan session

Seting BMC/DRAC time

System Inventory Data

Cassis/Power Sub info

Chassis power State

Power-On Hours counter

Cause of last reboot

Sel Log

Sensor Data Records

Sensor thresholds wide table format

Health Check Commands
BIOS Level Check (usually xCAT’s rinv will give this to you on some nodes as well)

Check System Memory

Check 6100 DIMM Slots

Check R710 DIMM Slots
