The Oracle ILOM implementation on the management controller within the switch provides an IPMI server, which can communicate the state of the switch hardware through the Intelligent Platform Management Interface.
An IPMI client is required to interface with the Oracle ILOM IPMI stack on the management controller. You must have administrator privileges to interface with the stack.
The ipmitool utility is the IPMI client used in these topics and has the following format:
$ ipmitool -v -I lan -H mc_IP -U user command option
mc_IP is the IP address of the management controller.
user is the user with administrative privileges. For example, ilom-admin.
command is the command to be run on the management controller.
option is an optional argument or parameter to the command.
Note - After typing the ipmitool command line, you must type the password of the user for the utility to continue. For the ilom-admin user, the default password is ilom-admin.
