Configuring Platform Events on Drac 5

  Configuring Platform Events   Humor Etc

Platform event configuration provides a mechanism for configuring the remote access device to perform selected actions on certain event messages. These actions include reboot, power cycle, power off, and triggering an alert (Platform Events Trap [PET] and/or e-mail).

The filterable Platform Events include the following:

When a platform event occurs (for example, a fan probe failure), a system event is generated and recorded in the System Event Log (SEL). If this event matches a platform event filter (PEF) in the Platform Event Filters list in the Web-based interface and you have configured this filter to generate an alert (PET or e-mail), then a PET or e-mail alert is sent to a set of one or more configured destinations.

If the same platform event filter is also configured to perform an action (such as rebooting the system), the action is performed.

Configuring Platform Event Filters (PEF)

Configure your platform event filters before you configure the platform event traps or e-mail alert settings.

Configuring PEF Using the Web User Interface

  1. Login to the remote system using a supported Web browser. See "Accessing the Web-Based Interface".
  2. Click the Alert Management tab and then click Platform Events.
  3. Enable global alerts.
    1. Click Alert Management and select Platform Events.
    1. Select the Enable Platform Event Filter Alert checkbox.
  4. Under Platform Events Filters Configuration, select the Enable Platform Event Filter alerts check box and then click Apply Changes.
  5. Under Platform Event Filters List, double-click a filter that you wish to configure.
  6. In the Set Platform Events page, make the appropriate selections and then click Apply Changes.
     
NOTE: Generate Alert must be enabled for an alert to be sent to any valid, configured destination (PET or e-mail).

Configuring PEF Using the RACADM CLI

  1. Enable PEF.

Open a command prompt, type the following command, and press <Enter>:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPef -o cfgIpmiPefEnable -i 1 1

where 1 and 1 are the PEF index and the enable/disable selection, respectively.

The PEF index can be a value from 1 through 17. The enable/disable selection can be set to 1 (Enabled) or 0 (Disabled).

For example, to enable PEF with index 5, type the following command:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPef -o cfgIpmiPefEnable -i 5 1

  1. Configure your PEF actions.

At the command prompt, type the following command and press <Enter>:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPef -o cfgIpmiPefAction -i 1 <action>

where the <action> values bits are as follows:

For example, to enable PEF to reboot the system, type the following command:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPef -o cfgIpmiPefAction -i 1 2

where 1 is the PEF index and 2 is the PEF action to reboot.

Configuring PET

Configuring PET Using the Web User Interface

  1. Login to the remote system using a supported Web browser. See "Accessing the Web-Based Interface".

Configuring PET Using RACADM CLI

  1. Enable your global alerts.

Open a command prompt, type the following command, and press <Enter>:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiLan -o cfgIpmiLanAlertEnable 1

  1. Enable PET.

At the command prompt, type the following commands and press <Enter> after each command:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPet -o cfgIpmiPetAlertEnable -i 1 1

where 1 and 1 are the PET destination index and the enable/disable selection, respectively.

The PET destination index can be a value from 1 through 4. The enable/disable selection can be set to 1 (Enabled) or 0 (Disabled).

For example, to enable PET with index 4, type the following command:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPet -o cfgIpmiPetAlertEnable -i 4 0

  1. Configure your PET policy.

At the command prompt, type the following command and press <Enter>:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiPet -o cfgIpmiPetAlertDestIPAddr -i 1 <IP_address>

where 1 is the PET destination index and <IP_address> is the destination IP address of the system that receives the platform event alerts.

  1. Configure the Community Name string.

At the command prompt, type:

racadm config -g cfgIpmiLan -o cfgIpmiPetCommunityName <Name>
