Using ipmitool with iLO 2

Hi,

Is it possible to use a standard ipmitool to access a server's power control through an HP iLO 2 Standard Interface (in a HP Proliant DL380 G5)?

Thanks

Re: Using ipmitool with iLO 2

ipmitool chassis power status
and
ipmitool chassis power cycle
works fine on our DL380G5-machines.

We are using CentOS5, and the default OpenIPMI-package.

Name : OpenIPMI
Version : 2.0.6

Fully patched RHEL4 here using OpenIPMI-1.4.14-1.4E.17, same outcome.

No Joy.

Anybody using RHEL5?

You have to load drivers and create the device node manually. Try this:

modprobe ipmi_devintf
modprobe ipmi_kcs_drv

mknod /dev/ipmi0 c `cat /proc/devices | grep ipmidev |cut -d " " -f 1` 0
