Utilities

Sensor List

usage: rf_sensor_list [-h] --user USER --password PASSWORD --rhost RHOST

A tool to walk a Redfish service and list sensor info

required arguments:
  --user USER, -u USER  The user name for authentication
  --password PASSWORD, -p PASSWORD
                        The password for authentication
  --rhost RHOST, -r RHOST
                        The address of the Redfish service (with scheme)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

Example: rf_sensor_list -u root -p root -r https://192.168.1.100

The tool will log into the service specified by the rhost argument using the credentials provided by the user and password arguments. It then traverses the Chassis Collection for the Service, and reads their respective Power and Thermal Resources. Using the information from those resources, it will build a sensor table and print the information collected.

System Inventory

usage: rf_sys_inventory [-h] --user USER --password PASSWORD --rhost RHOST
                        [--details] [--noabsent]

A tool to walk a Redfish service and list component information

required arguments:
  --user USER, -u USER  The user name for authentication
  --password PASSWORD, -p PASSWORD
                        The password for authentication
  --rhost RHOST, -r RHOST
                        The address of the Redfish service (with scheme)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --details, -details   Indicates if the full details of each component should
                        be shown
  --noabsent, -noabsent
                        Indicates if absent devices should be skipped

Example: rf_sys_inventory -u root -p root -r https://192.168.1.100 -details

The tool will log into the service specified by the rhost argument using the credentials provided by the user and password arguments. It then traverses the Chassis Collection for the Service, and collects component information for Processors, Memory, Drives, PCIeDevices, NetworkAdapters, and StorageControllers. Using the information collected, it will build an inventory table and print the information.

Power/Reset

usage: rf_power_reset [-h] --user USER --password PASSWORD --rhost RHOST
                      [--system SYSTEM] [--type TYPE]

A tool to perform a power/reset operation of a system

required arguments:
  --user USER, -u USER  The user name for authentication
  --password PASSWORD, -p PASSWORD
                        The password for authentication
  --rhost RHOST, -r RHOST
                        The address of the Redfish service (with scheme)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --system SYSTEM, -s SYSTEM

  --type TYPE, -t TYPE  The type of power/reset operation to perform

Example: rf_power_reset -u root -p root -r https://192.168.1.100 -t GracefulRestart

The tool will log into the service specified by the rhost argument using the credentials provided by the user and password arguments. It then traverses the System Collection for the Service to find the matching system specified by the system argument. It will perform the Reset action with the specified reset type from the type argument.

  • If system is not specified, and if the Service has exactly one system, it will perform the operation on the one system.
  • If type is not specified, it will attempt a GracefulRestart.

Boot Override

usage: rf_boot_override [-h] --user USER --password PASSWORD --rhost RHOST
                        [--system SYSTEM] [--target TARGET] [--uefi UEFI]
                        [--reset]

  --uefi UEFI, -uefi UEFI
                        If target is 'UefiTarget', the UEFI Device Path of the
                        device to boot. If target is 'UefiBootNext', the UEFI
                        Boot Option string of the device to boot.
  --reset, -reset       Signifies that the system is reset after the boot
                        override is set

Example: rf_boot_override -u root -p root -r https://192.168.1.100 -t Pxe -reset

The tool will log into the service specified by the rhost argument using the credentials provided by the user and password arguments. It then traverses the System Collection for the Service to find the matching system specified by the system argument.

  • If system is not specified, and if the Service has exactly one system, it will perform the operation on the one system.

The tool will then perform an operation on the Boot object within the matching system.

  • If target is specified, it will update the Boot object to set the boot override to be target.

Update

usage: rf_update [-h] --user USER --password PASSWORD --rhost RHOST --image
                 IMAGE [--target TARGET]

A tool to perform an update with a Redfish service

required arguments:
  --user USER, -u USER  The user name for authentication
  --password PASSWORD, -p PASSWORD
                        The password for authentication
  --rhost RHOST, -r RHOST

                        The target resource to apply the image

The tool will log into the service specified by the rhost argument using the credentials provided by the user and password arguments. It then builds a request payload to perform a Simple Update action against the Update Service using the image specified by the image argument. The optional target argument is used in the request if attempting to update a particular system, device, manager, or other resource. Once the Simple Update is requested, it monitors the progress of the update, and displays response messages reported by the service about the update once complete.
