BladeSystem and IPMI/DCMI

Timo had a customer question about blade management capabilities:

 

******************

 

Hi,

 

A customer wants to use IPMI/DCMI for monitoring and managing HP blades.

 

They are asking me, if we support DCMI enhancements  http://www.intel.com/technology/product/DCMI/index.htm for example get power reading ?

 

Do we support all commands or subset  ?

 

Do we have ProLiant specific commands ?

 

Does both OA and iLO support IPMI or just iLO ?

 

Any help appreciated .

 

****************

 

Rich responded wih some info:

 

*******************

 

iLO 3 is fully DCMI 1.0 compliant; we pass the DCMI Conformance test suite on the linked page, but due to an error in the test a power cap must be set for the Power section of the test to work correctly.

 

There are no ProLiant specific commands that are customer facing.

 

I am not sure why OA would support DCMI/IPMI but you would need to ask them if they do.

Any other input or comments?
