The HPI utilities package

specifications

The HPI utilities package provides system management tools that conform to the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface specification, and  as such are hardware-independent across platforms that have an HPI  library implementation.

The HPI library on Intel platforms requires  an IPMI driver.  An IPMI driver can be provided by either the Intel  IPMI driver (/dev/imb) or the OpenIPMI driver (/dev/ipmi0) in Linux  kernel versions 2.4.20 and greater.  The rpms default to the Intel imb driver.  o switch to using the OpenIPMI driver with this package, do  this after installing the rpm:

   cp /usr/lib/libSpiModIpmi.so      /usr/lib/libSpiModIpmi.so-imb
   cp /usr/lib/libSpiModIpmi.so-open /usr/lib/libSpiModIpmi.so
   sed -e 's/imb/ipmi0/' /etc/hpi/spi-daemon.conf >/tmp/spi
   cp /tmp/spi /etc/hpi/spi-daemon.conf


This HPI library is currently configured to use the /dev/imb interface, since that will coexist well with Intel Server Management software.  Note that the OpenIPMI driver also has imb emulation as an option.

This package includes the Intel HPI binary libraries and the  following HPI utilities.
