Data ONTAP commands for the BMC

Data ONTAP provides bmc commands that allow you to manage the BMC, including setting up the BMC, rebooting the BMC, displaying the status of the BMC, and updating the BMC firmware.

The following table describes the Data ONTAP commands for the BMC. These commands are also described in the na_bmc(1) man page.
Note: When you enter some of these commands, there might be a pause of a few seconds while the storage system queries the BMC. This is normal behavior.
