One of the additional advantages of configuring Conman to use the libipmiconsole library natively is that Conman is able to detect and manage ipml IPMI error cases. This typically includes monitoring elements such as system temperatures, voltages, fans, power supplies, bus errors, system physical security, etc. In some Linux distributions atleast with Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.

Conman is also capable lpmi connecting to servers natively through the libipmiconsole library, so that no additional processes are launched.

Ultimately, some amount of information from product documents or trial and error may be necessary to determine if IPMI is supported on your system. For example, it contains a list of all sensors on a system, so it must be downloaded before sensors on a system can be read. If your client machine has a default installation of Solaris 10, you can find a preinstalled version of IPMItool in the following directory: The IPMI specifications define standardized, abstracted interfaces to the platform management subsystem.
