Question
I am using ipmitool and would like to check if the power supply status (good/bad). How do I do this?
Answer
The commands depend on the power supply you have. If you have a power supply without PMbus, the commands are different than the one with PMbus. Please find commands below. Please determine the type of power supply, by visiting www.supermicro.com.

Note: Below commands apply only to power supplied sold by Super Micro

Example:
For regular Power supply
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x70 0x01 0x0c for PS 1
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x72 0x01 0x0c for PS 2
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x74 0x01 0x0c for PS 3

Output:
1 = good
0 = bad

For PM Bus Power supply
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x78 0x01 0x78 for PS 1
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x7a 0x01 0x78 for PS 2
ipmitool -H 192.168.100.1 -U ADMIN -P ADMIN raw 0x06 0x52 0x07 0x7c 0x01 0x78 for PS 3

Output:
1 = good
0 or 2 = bad
