Chapter 6. System management utilities 221
The service processors that support these interfaces are:
BladeCenter management module
Remote Supervisor Adapter II
Remote Supervisor Adapter II SlimLine
Remote Supervisor Adapter II-EXA
Remote Supervisor Adapter
ASM PCI Adapter (telnet and ANSI only)
ASM Processor (telnet only via the ASM interconnect network)
The xSeries BMC service processor supports telnet but only via SMBridge, as
discussed in 6.4, “OSA SMBridge utility” on page 192. The eServer BMC does
not support a telnet session.
This interface provides a subset of the management functions that are provided
by the Web interface. Like the other interfaces, you will need to authenticate
before you can issue any commands.
For the RSA II, RSA II SlimLine, and BladeCenter management module service
processors, the Telnet interface is command-line based. Each command has the
command [arguments] [-options]
The command syntax is case sensitive.
The command name is always lowercase.
Options always start with a hyphen.
One command per line.
Issuing the command help displays all available commands. Example 6-5 lists
the commands available with the RSA II.
Example 6-5 RSA II commands (from the help command)
? -- Display command list
clearcfg -- Resets the ASM to its default settings
clearlog -- Clear ASM event log
clock -- Display/set date, time, GMT offset, and dst setting
console -- Exit CLI, attach to serial console
dhcpinfo -- View DHCP server assigned settings
exit -- Exit CLI (log off)
fans -- Displays the fan speed for all system fans
help -- Display command list
history -- Display history of last 8 commands
ifconfig -- Ethernet and PPP configuration
portcfg -- Serial port configuration.
