freeipmi: specify default values to FreeIPMI

NAME

freeipmi.conf - specify default values to FreeIPMI

DESCRIPTION

The FreeIPMI configuration file can be used to set alternate default values to many FreeIPMI tools so values don't have to be configured on the command line. This allows users to avoid typing in a long list of command line options everytime a command is executed. It can also be used to hide usernames, passwords, and other sensitive information from the ps(1) command.

Currently, the tools that can be configured with the configuration file are: bmc-config(8), bmc-device(8), bmc-info(8), bmc-watchdog(8), ipmi-chassis(8), ipmi-chassis-config(8), ipmi-fru(8), ipmi-oem(8), ipmi-raw(8), ipmi-sel(8), ipmi-sensors(8), ipmi-sensors-config(8), ipmiconsole(8), ipmimonitoring(8), ipmipower(8), and pef-config(8).

By default, the configuration file is stored at /etc/freeipmi.conf. But users may select a different configuration file at the command line with the --config-file option.

Values specified on the command line override the configuration values specified in the configuration file.

FORMAT

The configuration options that can be specified in the configuration file are listed below. Each configuration option must be listed on a separate line. Arguments for an option are separated by any amount of whitespace. Multiple arguments are also separated by whitespace. Comments can be marked by using the pound sign ("#") character, and lines can be continued on the next using backslash ("\").

Note that it is possible to list the username, password and other potentially sensitive information in the configuration file. If this data is stored in a configuration file, system administrators should limit access to this file.

GENERAL OPTIONS

The following options are options generally available to all tools, although specific options may be ignored by some. (For example, ipmiconsole(8) and ipmipower(8) do not perform in-band communication, therefore they would ignore in-band communication options. Similarly bmc-watchdog(8) does not perform out-of-band communication, therefore it would ignore all out-of-band options).
