New package for SP3 for IPMI support.



Problem description

This package contains a utility for interfacing with devices that support the Intelligent Platform Management Interface specification. IPMI is an open standard for machine health, inventory, and remote power control.
This utility can communicate with IPMI-enabled devices through either a kernel driver such as OpenIPMI or over the RMCP LAN protocol defined in the IPMI specification. IPMIv2 adds support for encrypted LAN communications and remote Serial-over-LAN functionality.
It provides commands for reading the Sensor Data Repository (SDR) and displaying sensor values, displaying the contents of the System Event Log (SEL), printing Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) information, reading and setting LAN configuration, and chassis power control.
