I’ve been looking at IPMI lately (an under-the-server-hood set of arcanery) and ran across the ipmicmd tool… I can’t recall another tool with a more obscure set of command flags. Here’s an example:

ipmicmd raw 0x3a 0x1c 0x01 0x00

As you’ve probably guessed, that’ll send the command to IMM to switch Bank and then reboot.

Thanks to IBM dox for that example (and others.)

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
