openipmicmd - An IPMI Command Interface
openipmicmd [-k entry-to-execute] <connection parms>
The openipmicmd program allows a user to execute direct IPMI commands.
It can work with direct interface with the OpenIPMI driver or with IPMI
Execute a single command an exit.
The parameters for the connection depend on the connection type.
These are all described in openipmi_conparms (7)
Once up, you can execute commands in the user interface. Note that
commands and responses are asynchronous, you issue a command and the
interface returns immediately. When the response comes back, it will
be dumped on your console. That’s a little strange looking, but IPMI
is ansychronous underneath. Note that the -k option is synchronous, it
will wait for the response or a timeout before returning.
0f lun netfn cmd [data1 [data2 ...]]
Send a command to the BMC you are connected to.
channel [ipmb] IPMB-addr lun netfn [seq] cmd [data1 [data2 ...]]
Send a command to a device on the IPMB bus. The "ipmb" string
is optional. The seq must be provided if the netfn is a
response (an odd number). It must be the same sequence number
that came in on the command in the "Command Sequence = seq" part
of the command.
channel 00 IPMB-addr lun netfn cmd [data1 [data2 ...]]
Send a broadcast command to a device on the IPMB bus.
channel lan handle remote-swid local-swid lun netfn cmd [data1 [data
Send a command to a device over a LAN channel. Note that this
not the same as a LAN connection. This sends a message through
a local BMC to a remote system that is hooked up with a LAN
test_lat count command
Executes the given commands (one of the previous commands) count
times and gives the average time per command to execute. Note
that "count" is hexadecimal.
help Display some help.
regcmd netfn cmd
Register to receive the given command. If the driver receives
an external command, it will print it out. This only works with
system interface connections, it will not work on LAN
unregcmd netfn cmd
Remove a command registration.

The asychronous nature of the program can be annoying.
