 AN!Wiki :: IPMI

IPMI is an acronym for Intelligent Platform Management Interface. This is a technology built into many server-grade mainboards, sometimes via an optional add-in card, that allows "out of band" access to a server. This means that, via an IPMI interface, a user can remotely connect to a server regardless of it's power state. Through this interface the user can check the power state of the server plus one or more of it's sensors. The user can initiate a reboot, power off, power on and so forth.

IPMI is used as the basis of numerous OEM remote access technologies. To learn more, please see the wikipedia entry.

IPMI Setup for Remote Access and Fencing

Please see the IPMI section of the AN!Cluster Tutorial 2. That section carefully walks through the configuration of IPMI on EL6.
