- Previously, enabling the "ipmi" and "link" keys in user access information using the ipmitool utility did not work properly. Consequently, the values of these settings were not taken into account. A patch has been provided that ensures the values of these settings are read and processed as expected.
- In the previous ipmitool package update, new options "-R" and "-N" were added to adjust the retransmission rate of outgoing IPMI requests over lan and lanplus interfaces. Implementation of these options set wrong default value of the retransmission timeout and outgoing request timed out prematurely. In addition, in some corner cases, ipmitool could have terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault when the timeout occurred. This update fixes the default timeout value and ipmitool without the "-N" option retransmits outgoing IPMI requests like in previous versions.
- Previously, the exit code of the "ipmitool -o list" command was set incorrectly so that the command always returned 1. This update modifies ipmitool to return the exit code 0 as expected.
- The "ipmitool sol payload" and "ipmitool sel" commands previously accepted incorrect argument values, which caused the ipmitool utility to terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, argument values of these commands are now validated, and ipmitool no longer crashes but generates an error message when used with incorrect arguments.
- Previously, ipmitool could not be used to set retransmission intervals of IPMI messages over the LAN or lanplus interface. This update introduces new options, "-R" and "-N", which can be used to specify number of retransmissions and delay between them (in seconds) when transferring IPMI messages using the LAN or lanplus interfaces.
- The "ipmitool delloem" command has been updated to the latest upstream version, which includes the new "vFlash" command allowing to show information about extended SD cards. This patch also updates documentation of the "ipmitool delloem" commands, improves error descriptions and adds support for new hardware.
