BMC admin mode command syntax summary

The BMC commands in admin mode enable you to perform most of the tasks supported by the BMC.

The following table provides a quick reference of the command syntax for the BMC commands you can use in admin mode.

BMC admin mode command syntax Description
help [command] Displays a list of available commands. If a command is specified, displays the subcommands available for that command or its syntax usage.
exit Exits from the BMC command line interface.
bmc config Displays the BMC configuration.
bmc config {autoneg [enabled|disabled] | dhcp [on|off] | duplex [full|half] | gateway [gateway] | ipaddr [ip-address] | netmask [netmask] | speed [10|100]} Enables or disables Ethernet port auto negotiation. Sets BMC DHCP, Ethernet port duplex mode, BMC IP gateway, BMC IP address, BMC IP netmask, or Ethernet port speed at 10M or 100M.
bmc show Displays BMC version and system information.
events {all | info | latest [N] | oldest [N] | search [attr=N] | show [N]} Displays storage system events logged by the BMC, including all system events, system event log (SEL) information, N latest system events, N oldest system events, events by attribute/value pair, or event N.

For example, the following command displays events of the sensor whose ID is #dl. events search id=#dl

Note: You can find the sensor ID by using sensors show. Use id=#ff for Data ONTAP and BMC status events.
fru show Displays chassis FRU information.
priv Displays current privilege level.
priv set [admin | advanced] Sets the privilege level to access the specified mode. The default is admin mode.
sensors show Displays current state of sensors.
sensors search [attr=N] Searches a sensor by its ID.

For example, the following command displays current state of sensor #09. sensors search id=#09

Note: You can find the sensor ID by using sensors show.
system console Logs in to Data ONTAP CLI.
Note: Use Ctrl-G to return to the BMC prompt.
system core Dumps the storage system core and resets the storage system. This command has the same effect as pressing the Non-maskable Interrupt (NMI) button on a storage system.
Note: The BMC stays operational as long as input power to the storage system is not interrupted.
system log Displays the system console history.
system power {on | off | cycle | status} Turns the storage system on or off, performs a power cycle, or displays the power status. Standby power stays on. Using the system power command may cause an improper shutdown of the storage system. When power-cycling, there is a brief pause before power is turned back on.
Note: If a storage system is power-cycled with the system in an active/active configuration, the other system takes over and the rebooted system comes up in a “waiting for giveback” mode.
system show Displays system information.
Note: The fault field of the output displays system status, which may be none (no fault), pcm (the Processor Controller Module has a fault), or system (Data ONTAP has detected a system level fault that does not involve the PCM).
