Thanks, however I learned that the firewall may have been blocking me. Since then I've asked that they allow the RMM IP through. In one case they have.
I logged on to the device using putty and got the SMASH CLP prompt. I am going through the Intel_rmm_userguide_r1_4.pdf for what to do and it's not very helpful. I've typed sow help and it basically tells me to read the document I cited.
I tried the commands from an ssh putty session, you suggested and I get "No such file or directory".
Where do I run these commands?
Those command would run on the local OS (assuming your Linux version has IPMItool installed.)
If you are reaching the RMM now it has a web based interface you can access by just opening a web browser to the IP address of the RMM. (HTTP:\\10.10.10.1)
IPMItool can also be installed on your local system and run over the network using the command syntax:
ipmitool -H10.10.10.1 -Uuserid -Ppassword lan print 1
However since the above command are to tell you the IP, & if any userids are enabled, it does not do a lot of good since you can't use the commands unless you already know the BMC user name and password and IP.
You can get ipmitool here IPMItool - Browse Files at SourceForge.net if it is not on your linux box.
It includes instruction to compile from windows or you do a sheach for ipmitool.exe, SUN use to post a windows version pre-compliled.
IPMIutil is a sister utility for windows and is here ipmiutil - IPMI Management Utilities
I have not used it as much so not sure of all the syntax.
