IPMItool for Windows
This chapter describes how to install IPMItool
on systems equipped with the Windows operating system.
The procedures in this chapter assume that you have already
done the following:
Installed the Microsoft Windows Server
2003 or Windows Server 2008 operating system.
Downloaded Windows.zip and
Run InstallPack_x_x_x.exe to
install supplemental software on the server, or for Windows Server
2008, downloadeded and installed the contents of the Tools and Driver
Note - The _x_x_x number
identifies the version of the package (for example, InstallPack_1_1_4.zip).
Completing the IPMItool Installation
The IPMItool is a command line utility that reads the sensor
data repository (SDR) and displays sensor values, System Event Log
(SEL), Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) inventory information, gets
and sets LAN configuration parameters, and performs chassis power
control operations via the server’s Service Processor.
IPMItool is supplemental software and may be installed using
the server’s Tools and Drivers CD or using the Installpack_x_x_x.exe executable
file (described earlier in this chapter).
Once installed, the IPMItool can be used to access your server’s
Service Processor (or another Sun server’s Service Processor) in
the following ways:
Through the server’s ILOM (Integrated
Lights Out Manager) interface. For details on using ILOM,
refer to your server’s ILOM documentation.
Through the server’s Windows operating system. To
use the IPMItool with Windows, it must be used in conjunction with
the IPMI System Management driver (available with Windows Server
2003 R2 SP2, or as a Sun supplemental software component for Windows
Server 2003 SP1). To make sure you have what you need to use the
IPMItool with Windows Server 2003, refer to the requirements listed
To use IPMItool, ensure that you have completed the requirements
