Exit Print View

Updated: August 2017


IPMItool is an open-source simple command-line interface (CLI) utility for managing and configuring IPMI-enabled devices. The utility can be used to manage the IPMI functions of a local or remote system with a kernel device driver or over a LAN interface. Versions of the IPMItool utility for all Oracle ILOM supported IPMI interfaces are available for download from the Oracle Hardware Management Pack.

You can do the following with IPMItool:

  • Read the sensor data record (SDR) repository.

  • Print sensor values.

  • Display the contents of the system event log (SEL).

  • Print field-replaceable unit (FRU) inventory information.

  • Read and set LAN configuration parameters.

  • Perform remote chassis power control.

IPMItool features command-line help, which can be accessed by typing ipmitool help at the command-line prompt.

IPMItool supports a feature that enables you to enter Oracle ILOMCLI commands just as though you were using the ILOM CLI directly. CLI commands can be scripted, and then the script can be run on multiple service processor (SP) instances. For additional information, see Using IPMItool to Run Oracle ILOM CLI Commands.
