IPMItool is a command-line utility that reads the sensor data repository (SDR) and displays:
System Event Log (SEL)
Field Replaceable Units (FRU) information
IPMItool also gets and sets LAN configuration parameters, and performs chassis power control operations through the server’s Service Processor.
IPMItool is supplemental software that can be installed using the server’s Tools and Drivers CD or using the Installpack_x_x_x.exe executable file, where the _x_x_x number identifies the version of the package (for example, InstallPack_1_1_4.zip).
