ipmidetect - list detected and/or undetected IPMI interfaces in a cluster
lists which IPMI nodes have been detected or undetected in a cluster.
This information is provided by the
will output the status of each IPMI node configured with
unless they are specified on the command line. If the first node
listed is "-", nodes will be read in from standard input. The nodes
can be listed in hostrange format, comma separated lists, or space
separated lists. See the section below on HOSTRANGED SUPPORT for
instructions on how to list hosts in range format. The hostnames
listed must be the shortened names of hostnames.
- -h, --help
Print help and exit
- -v, --version
Print version and exit
- -o STRING, --hostname=STRING
server hostname (default=localhost)
- -p INT, --port=INT
server port (default=8649)
- -d, --detected
List only detected nodes
- -u, --undetected
List only undetected nodes
- -q, --hostrange
List nodes in hostrange format (default)
- -c, --comma
List nodes in comma separated list
- -n, --newline
List nodes in newline separated list
- -s, --space
List nodes in space separated list
Multiple hosts can be input either as an explicit comma separated
lists of hosts or a range of hostnames in the general form:
prefix[n-m,l-k,...], where n < m and l < k, etc. The later form
should not be confused with regular expression character classes (also
denoted by ). For example, foo does not represent foo1 or foo9,
but rather represents a degenerate range: foo19.
This range syntax is meant only as a convenience on clusters with a
prefixNN naming convention and specification of ranges should not be
considered necessary -- the list foo1,foo9 could be specified as such,
or by the range foo[1,9].
Some examples of range usage follow:
foo[01-05] instead of foo01,foo02,foo03,foo04,foo05
foo[7,9-10] instead of foo7,foo9,foo10
foo[0-3] instead of foo0,foo1,foo2,foo3
As a reminder to the reader, some shells will interpret brackets ([
and ]) for pattern matching. Depending on your shell, it may be
necessary to enclose ranged lists within quotes.
The exit value of
depends on the options performed on the command line. If the default
output is used, the exit value will be 0 if the command succeeds
without error. If the --detected option is used and no undetected
nodes have been discovered, the exit value will be 0. If undetected
nodes are found, the exit value will be 1. If the --undetected option
is used and no detected nodes have been discovered, the exit value
will be 0. If detected nodes are found, the exit value will be 1. On
errors, the exit value will be 2.
