Usage: lspci [<switches>]

Basic display modes:
-mm Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
-t Show bus tree

Display options:
-v Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
-k Show kernel drivers handling each device
-x Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
-xxx Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
-xxxx Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
-b Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
-D Always show domain numbers

Resolving of device ID's to names:
-n Show numeric ID's
-nn Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
-q Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
-qq As above, but re-query locally cached entries
-Q Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS

Selection of devices:
-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]] Show only devices in selected slots
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>] Show only devices with specified ID's

Other options:
-i <file> Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/hwdata/pci.ids
-p <file> Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
-M Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)

PCI access options:
-A <method> Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
-O <par>=<val> Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)
-G Enable PCI access debugging
-H <mode> Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)
-F <file> Read PCI configuration dump from a given file

ERROR: There is NO IPMI support available on this system!
Please install the hp-OpenIPMI package or enable IPMI support
for this distribution. Aborting hp-health initialization process!

 

the script seems to be looking for an ipmi device from lspci output but its not able to find one:

 

[root@engnpbm001 init.d]# bash -x ./hp-health start

...

++ lspci
++ grep -i ipmi
++ cut '-d ' -f1
+ ipmiDevId=
+ lspci -xv -s
+ grep -q ipmi_si
lspci: option requires an argument -- 's'
Usage: lspci [<switches>]

 

however LO100 says that it supports IPMI2.0. I don't know much about IPMI, but I suppose this means IPMI support doesn't mean the presence of an IPMI device? if that's the case, what's the IPMI thing LO100 is talking about?

 

regards,

Marc

Hi, same problem on a dl180g6 with CentOs 6.4 x64

Re: DL165 G7 and hp-health problems

hi, all.

 

it seems that hp-health version 9.31-1572.3's bug.

 

this version was released for the bug fix of hp-health initscript due to RHEL6.4's incompatible kernel config option.

the changes of hp-health initscript  between 9.30-1564.48 and 9.31-1572.3 is following:

RHEL6.4, ipmi_si module was statically linked into kernel, so modprobe/lsmod doesn't show ipmi_si module.

$ lsmod | grep ipmi
ipmi_devintf            7729  4

it is impossible to check whether OS has IPMI or not by modprobe(8).

so HP's engineer decided to use lspci(8) and check real IPMI hardware, but it is not good for 1XX system.

 

my DL120 G6 has Integrated Lights-Out 100 onboard, but it doesn't show in lspci(8) output.

so that, following code in hp-health initscript, line:578, ipmiDevId variable may be undefined.

and line:579, lspci -xv -s  causes missing argument error.

576     if ! have_distro_ipmi; then
577      #check ipmi_si drivir loaded with kernel
578         ipmiDevId="$(lspci | grep -i ipmi | cut -d' ' -f1)"
579         if  lspci -xv -s $ipmiDevId | grep -q "ipmi_si"; then
580          ipmi_si_module="none"
581         else
582         echo
583         cmaecho "ERROR: There is NO IPMI support available on this system!"
584         cmaecho "Please install the hp-OpenIPMI package or enable IPMI support"
585         cmaecho "for this distribution. Aborting hp-health initialization process!"
586         exit 1
587         fi
588     fi

 

# service hp-health start
  Using Proliant Standard
        IPMI based 1XX System Health Monitor
lspci: option requires an argument -- 's'

...

 to fix this, i think don't use lspci(8), use dmidecode --type 38 or /proc/ipmi/* instead.

 

 

if you can't wait HP's real fix, please apply following *kludge* patch:
