Hi Andrei,

I think I have figured out the root cause that's I didn't add the command in the ipmi-whitelist.conf within the intel-ipmi-oem. Thank you all the same.

Hi Andrei,

One more thing would like to consult you is I have tried to add our own xxx-ipmi-oem, but got the "Insufficient privilege level" feedback after executing an oem command. However, it would be successful in case I removed intel-ipmi-oem. Do you have experience with this? If yes, may I know how to fix it?

I currently would like to keep leveraging the intel-ipmi-oem until I integrate the commands I needed into our own xxx-ipmi-oem.

Thank you.

Chris Chen

I don't represent Intel, but have some considerations about this topic:
1) Try to not reuse intel-ipmi-oem. Much better solution would be to
create your own xxx-ipmi-oem package and implement only methods you
really need.
2) Better way would be to implement required logic in phosphor-host-
ipmid and submit changes there. I didn't investigate this yet since we
also pull intel-ipmi-oem to our project, but I believe, it should not
be too difficult. Don't repeat our mistakes ).
3) There is priority argument which you can use to determine handler
call order.
4) Most functions there are specific for Intel servers, so the useless
even is you use Intel CPUs but your own platform.
5) Use "journalctl -t ipmid -o pretty-json" or something like this. But
now it is recommended to use new syntax:;!!HSntlCg!G61XcVxUr8Hli8HqIlebVYji3tTPXsn33W5oyo-FlU8fbm6Zd66S0H6cseru6Bcw$
