rebootbmc command

Use the rebootbmc command to restart the baseboard management controller. This command is for BIOS-based servers only.

This command is useful because the system must be restarted after you make changes to baseboard management controller settings.


The syntax of the rebootbmc command is
asu rebootbmc [-nx]
Note: If the optional -nx parameter is specified, the ASU performs the operation for node x, where x is the selected node in a multi-node system. Node x can be a number from 1 through 8. If the -nx parameter is not specified, the operation is performed on the primary node (node 1).


The output of the rebootbmc command is a message that indicates that the restart of the baseboard management controller is completed.

The rebootbmc command and corresponding output are shown in the following example.

Command line:
 asu rebootbmc
