Overview

Manages the OpenIPMI package

Description

Installs the OpemIPMI package, provides IPMI facts in a format compatible with The Foreman's BMC features and enables the ipmi service. The latter loads the kernel drivers needed for communicating with the BMC from user space.

Usage

Examples

   include ipmi

Create a user with admin privileges (default):

   ipmi::user { 'newuser1':
     user     => 'newuser1',
     password => 'password1',
     user_id  => 4,
   }

Create a user with operator privileges:

   ipmi::user { 'newuser2':
     user     => 'newuser2',
     password => 'password2',
     priv     => 3,
     user_id  => 5,
   }

Configure a static ip on IPMI lan channel 1:

   ipmi::network { 'lan1':
     type        => 'static',
     ip          => '192.168.1.10',
     netmask     => '255.255.255.0',
     gateway     => '192.168.1.1',
   }

Configure IPMI lan channel 1 to DHCP:

   ipmi::network { 'dhcp': }

Configure IPMI snmp string on lan channel 1:

   ipmi::snmp { 'lan1':
     snmp        => 'secret',
     lan_channel => 1,
   }

Classes

ipmi

# defaults
class { 'ipmi':
  service_ensure         => 'running', # default is 'running'
  ipmievd_service_ensure => 'running', # default is 'stopped'
  watchdog               => true,      # default is false
}
service_ensure

String defaults to: running

Possible values: running, stopped

Controls the state of the ipmi service.

ipmievd_service_ensure

String defaults to: stopped

Possible values: running, stopped

Controls the state of the ipmievd service.

watchdog

Boolean defaults to: false

Controls whether the IPMI watchdog is enabled.

Defined Resources

ipmi::user

# defaults
ipmi::user { 'newuser':
  user     => 'root',
  priv     => 4,           # Administrator
  user_id  => 3,
}
user

String defaults to: root

Controls the username of the user to be created.

password

String - required field

Controls the password of the user to be created.

priv

Integer defaults to: 4

Possible values: 4 - ADMINISTRATOR, 3 - OPERATOR, 2 - USER, 1 - CALLBACK

Controls the rights of the user to be created.

user_id

Integer defaults to: 3

The user id of the user to be created. Should be unique from existing users. On SuperMicro IPMI, user id 2 is reserved for the ADMIN user.

ipmi::network

# defaults
ipmi::network { 'lan1':
  type        => 'dhcp',
  ip          => '0.0.0.0',
  netmask     => '255.255.255.0',
  gateway     => '0.0.0.0',
  lan_channel => 1,
}
type

String defaults to: dhcp

Possible values: dhcp, static

Controls the if IP will be from DHCP or Static.

ip

String defaults to: 0.0.0.0

Controls the IP of the IPMI network.

netmask

String defaults to: 255.255.255.0

Controls the subnet mask of the IPMI network.

gateway

String defaults to: 0.0.0.0

Controls the gateway of the IPMI network.

lan_channel

Integer defaults to: 1

Controls the lan channel of the IPMI network to be configured.

ipmi::snmp

# defaults
ipmi::snmp { 'lan1':
  snmp        => 'public',
  lan_channel => 1,
}
snmp

String defaults to: public

Controls the snmp string of the IPMI network interface.

lan_channel

Integer defaults to: 1

Controls the lan channel of the IPMI network on which snmp is to be configured.

Additional Facts

This module provides additional facts for Facter with the following format:

ipmi1_gateway => 192.168.10.1
ipmi1_ipaddress => 192.168.10.201
ipmi1_ipaddress_source => Static Address
ipmi1_macaddress => 00:30:48:c9:64:2a
ipmi1_subnet_mask => 255.255.255.0

where the 1 in ipmi1 corresponds to the channel according to ipmitool lan print.

Additionally for compatibility with The Foreman, the first IPMI interface (i.e. the one from ipmi lan print 1) gets all facts repeated as just ipmi_foo:

ipmi_gateway => 192.168.10.1
ipmi_ipaddress => 192.168.10.201
ipmi_ipaddress_source => Static Address
ipmi_macaddress => 00:30:48:c9:64:2a
ipmi_subnet_mask => 255.255.255.0

Limitations

At present, only support for RedHat and Debian distributions has been implemented.

Adding other Linux distrubtions should be trivial.

Contributing

  1. Fork it on github
  2. Make a local clone of your fork
  3. Create a topic branch. Eg, feature/mousetrap
  4. Make/commit changes
    • Commit messages should be in imperative tense
    • Check that linter warnings or errors are not introduced - bundle exec rake lint
    • Check that Rspec-puppet unit tests are not broken and coverage is added for new features - bundle exec rake spec
    • Documentation of API/features is updated as appropriate in the README
    • If present, beaker acceptance tests should be run and potentially updated - bundle exec rake beaker
  5. When the feature is complete, rebase / squash the branch history as necessary to remove "fix typo", "oops", "whitespace" and other trivial commits
  6. Push the topic branch to github
  7. Open a Pull Request (PR) from the topic branch onto parent repo's master branch
