Comment: IMPI > IPMI


Once the SNMP scan has been performed (or not), the data about the device is used to attempt to determine if the device already exists within Open-AudIT. If so it is updated, if not a new device is inserted. A note of the internal system id is made for the next section.



Open-AudIT when running on a Linux server with ipmitool installed can query the IPMI interface (used as a remote access card in servers, sometimes called an ILO card). If you have credentials set, very basic information can be retrieved. This is only available on Linux based Open-AudIT servers.
