IPMI TLS is an Oracle improvement to IPMI security which requires a special version of the ipmitool client that supports TLS sessions. The IPMItool command option to access the TLS interface is:
impitool -I orcltls
Note that in cases where the -I option is not specified, the IPMItool utility will negotiate to the most secure interface available (in the following order):
TLS 1.2 (orcltls interface)
TLS 1.1 (orcltls interface)
TLS 1.0 (orcltls interface)
IPMI 2.0 (lanplus interface)
IPMI 1.5 (lan interface)
Prior to executing Oracle ILOM commands from the TLS ipmitool interface, you must download the Oracle TLS components (OS compliant driver and the orcltls IPMItool interface) from Oracle Hardware Management Pack. For instance, to download the Oracle TLS components from Oracle Hardware Management Pack, follow this process:
On the managed device, download Oracle Hardware Management Pack (v2.4 or later for Linux or v4.0 or later for Oracle Solaris) from My Oracle Support.
Launch the installer for the Hardware Management Component GUI by following the instructions in the Oracle Hardware Management Pack Installation Guide.
The Oracle Hardware Management Pack documentation is available for download at: http://docs.oracle.com/en/servers/management.htmlhttp://docs.oracle.com/en/servers/management.html
After launching the installer for the Hardware Management Component GUI, choose the Custom Install.
In the Custom Install Set menu, choose IPMItool.
Continue to follow the instructions in the Oracle Hardware Management Pack Installation Guide to complete the installation.
