Once IPMI is configured, it can be accessed through third-party proprietary tools, or most commonly through the ipmitool command in Linux. The ipmitool command is included in most Linux distributions.
To manage an Isilon or PowerScale node through IPMI, from a Linux endpoint, use the following syntax:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H [Node IP] -U [Username] -L OPERATOR -P [password] power [status, on, off, cycle, reset]
ipmitool -I lanplus -H [Node IP] -U [Username] -L OPERATOR -P [password] sol [info, activate, deactivate]

To check if a node has an active SoL connection, run the following command:
ipmitool channel info 1
