IPMI under FreeBSD is easy!

without comments

Its easy, first you need the ipmi kernel module loaded e.g. kldload ipmi. Add ipmi kernel module and its dependency i2c (for smbus) to your kernel and recompile if its not already available.

Next build / install ipmitool package (/usr/ports/sysutils/ipmitool)

That’s all, see man ipmitool for the myriad of options 🙂
