NAME

ipmctl-change-device-passphrase - Changes the security passphrase on DCPMM


Note

This command is subject to OS Vendor (OSV) support. It will return "Not Supported."

 

SYNOPSIS

ipmctl set [OPTIONS] -dimm [TARGETS] Passphrase=(string) NewPassphrase=(string)ConfirmPassphrase=(string)

 

DESCRIPTION

Changes the security passphrase on one or more DCPMMs. 

OPTIONS

-h, -help

Displays help for the command.

-source (path)

File path to a local file containing the new passphrase (1-32 characters).


Note

The file does not need to contain the ConfirmPassphrase property

 

TARGETS

-dimm (DimmIDs)

Changes the passphrase on specific DCPMMs by supplying one or morecomma separated DCPMM identifiers. However, this is not recommended asit may put the system in an undesirable state. The default is to change thepassphrase on all manageable DCPMMs.
 

PROPERTIES

Passphrase

The current passphrase (1-32 characters). For better passphrase protection, specify anempty string (e.g., Passphrase="") to be prompted for the current passphrase or to usea file containing the passphrases with the source option.

NewPassphrase

The new passphrase (1-32 characters). For better passphrase protection,specify an empty string (e.g., NewPassphrase="") to be prompted for thepassphrase or to use a file containing the passphrase with the source option.

ConfirmPassphrase

Confirmation of the new passphrase (1-32 character and must matchNewPassphrase). For better passphrase protection, specify an empty string(e.g., ConfirmPassphrase="") to be prompted for the passphrase or to use afile containing the passphrase with the source option.
 

EXAMPLES

Changes the passphrase from mypassphrase to mynewpassphrase on all DCPMMs.

ipmctl set -dimm Passphrase=mypassphrase NewPassphrase=mynewpassphrase ConfirmPassphrase=mynewpassphrase

Changes the passphrase on all DCPMMs by having the CLI prompt for thecurrent and new passphrases.

ipmctl set -dimm Passphrase="" NewPassphrase="" ConfirmPassphrase=""

Changes the passphrase on all DCPMMs by supplying the current and newpassphrases from the specified file. In this example, the format of the filewould be:

#ascii
Passphrase=myOldPassphrase
NewPassphrase=myNewPassphrase

ipmctl set -source passphrase.file -dimm Passphrase="" NewPassphrase=""ConfirmPassphrase=""

 

LIMITATIONS

The specified DCPMM must be manageable by the host software, havesecurity enabled and not be in the "Unlocked, Frozen", "Disabled, Frozen",or "Exceeded" lock states.

Command is subject to OS Vendor (OSV) support. If OSV does not provide support,command will return "Not Supported." 

RETURN DATA

If empty strings are provided for the passphrase properties and the sourceoption is not included, the user will be prompted (once for all DCPMM) to enterthe current passphrase, then again for the new passphrase and then again toconfirm the new passphrase as described below. The passphrase characters arehidden.

Current passphrase: ****

For each DIMM, the CLI will indicate the status of the passphrase changeoperation. If a failure occurs when updating the passphrase on multiple DCPMMs,the process will exit and not continue updating the remaining DCPMMs. 

SAMPLE OUTPUT

Change passphrase on DIMM (DimmID): SuccessChange passphrase on DIMM (DimmID): Error (Code)-(Description)
