Creating an IPMI User Account (SRC CLI)


An IPMI username and password are required to connect to a remote IPMI interface. You can define new IPMI user accounts using the CLI.


The configuration statements under the edit system ipmi hierarchy are not supported, if the SRC software is deployed as a virtual machine.

To create an IPMI user account using the SRC CLI:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures an IPMI interface.
  2. Set a plain-text password that is autoencrypted by the CLI.

    For example:

  3. Verify the configuration.
