14.6.9 Creating a Management File
Create a management file in csv format for setting remote power management groups. You can create the management file and store it by using a URL that is accessible with the http, https, ftp, or file scheme.
The management file description format is as follows.
1,1,0x01,8a041209b35947899e7bfa5d578dbd3f,0x03,0x00,default,,10.
24.0.0,0x10,xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,,,,,,,,,"4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12"
 1,2,0x00,8a041209b35947899e7bfa5d578dbd40,0x03,0x00,default,,10.
24.0.0,0x10,xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,,,,,,,,,
1,3,0x10,8a041209b35947899e7bfa5d578dbd41,0x03,0x00,default,,10.
24.0.0,0x10,xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,,,,,,,,, (Omitted)

0.24.0.0,0x10,xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,,,,,,,,,,
For each row, specify the following in the order shown: GroupID, NodeID, NodeType, NodeIdentName, Linkage, Operation, User, Password, IP0-0, Slave0-0, MAC0-0, IP0-1, Slave0-1, MAC0-1, IP1-0, Slave1-0, MAC1-0, IP1-1, Slave1-1, MAC1-1, and SubNode.

The setting item details are as follows.
Table 14-15  Setting Items for the Management File for Remote Power Management
Item Description
GroupID Group ID of remote power management group
You can specify an integer (decimal) from 1 to 32. All the group IDs in one management file must be identical.
NodeID Node ID of remote power management device
You can specify an integer (decimal) from 1 to 128. The node IDs in one management file must be unique.
NodeType Node type of remote power management device
Specify any of the following values.
0x00: host node, 0x01: master host node, 0x10: I/O node,
0x20: remote power distribution unit
NodeIdentName Distinguished name of remote power management device
You can specify a System GUID or any unique character string.
As shown in the example, System GUID is specified as 32 consecutive digits. The value is handled as hexadecimal with case ignored.
In the case of any character string, you can specify the value in hexadecimal using up to 32 digits.
Linkage Value representing remote power-on management (hexadecimal)
Specify any of the following values.
0x00: Disable, 0x01: Enable (On), 0x02: Enable (Off),
0x03: Enable (On+Off)
Operation Value representing power-on method
Specify it using either of the following ways.
0x00:IPMI, 0x01:WakeOnLAN
User IPMI user name
Leave it blank without specifying anything. If it is not blank, operation is not guaranteed.
Password IPMI password
Leave it blank without specifying anything.
IP Address IP address of IPMI port of controller
You can specify an IPv4 address with a character string.
SlaveAddress Value representing IPMI slave address of controller (hexadecimal)
Specify "0x20".
MAC Address MAC address of IPMI port of controller
You can specify a MAC address with a character string.
Example: b0:99:28:98:18:2e
Even though the host node does not support power-on using Wake on LAN, you need to set a value. In this case, you can specify a dummy value as shown below.
Example: 00:00:00:00:00:00
SubNodeID Character string representing a subnode ID that is control target
0 to 31, or blank.

You can specify the target subnode IDs (decimal) by separating them with a comma (,), and enclosing everything in double quotation marks (").
A blank indicates that the entire node is the control target.
