The IPMItool is a command-line utility that reads the sensor data repository (SDR) and shows sensor values, system event log (SEL), field-replaceable unit (FRU) inventory information, gets and sets LAN configuration parameters, and performs chassis power control operations using the server’s service processor. IPMItool is supplemental software and can be installed using the server’s Tools and Drivers CD/DVD or using the InstallPack_x_x_x.exe executable file (described in Installing Critical Device Drivers).
Once installed, the IPMItool can be used to access your server’s service processor (or another Oracle server’s service processor) in the following ways:
Through the server’s Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager interface. For details on using ILOM, refer to your server’s ILOM documentation.
Through the server’s Windows operating system using a command prompt. The IPMItool for Windows is used in conjunction with the Microsoft's IPMI System Management driver (bundled with Windows Server 2008 R2 and installed when you install the OS).
