Collaborative PDU is also referred as Coral PDU, it controls power for compute Rack. User can access PDU via SSH and can use the PduManager command to configure and manage the PDU product.
Pre-Defined PDU Objects
A pre-defined PDU node object is required before running pdudiscover command.
mkdef coralpdu groups=pdu mgt=pdu nodetype=pdu (required)
all other attributes can be set by chdef command or pdudisocover command.
--switch required for pdudiscover command to do mapping
--switchport required for pdudiscover command to do mapping
--ip ip address of the pdu.
--mac can be filled in by pdudiscover command
--pdutype crpdu(for coral pdu) or irpdu(for infrastructure PDUs)
The following attributes need to be set in order to configure snmp with non-default values.
--community community string for coral pdu
--snmpversion snmp version number, required if configure snmpv3 for coral pdu
--snmpuser snmpv3 user name, required if configure snmpv3 for coral pdu
--authkey auth passphrase for snmpv3 configuration
--authtype auth protocol (MD5|SHA) for snmpv3 configuration
--privkey priv passphrase for snmpv3 configuration
--privtype priv protocol (AES|DES) for snmpv3 configuration
--seclevel security level (noAuthNoPriv|authNoPriv|authPriv) for snmpv3 configuration
Make sure to run makehosts after pre-defined PDU.
After pre-defining PDUs, user can use pdudisocver –range ip_range –setup to configure the PDUs, or following commands can be used:
To configure passwordless of Coral PDU:
# rspconfig coralpdu sshcfg
To change hostname of Coral PDU:
# rspconfig coralpdu hosname=f5pdu3
To change ip address of PDU:
# rsconfig coralpdu ip=x.x.x.x netmaks=255.x.x.x
To configure SNMP community string or snmpv3 of PDU (the attribute needs to pre-defined):
# rspconfig coralpdu snmpcfg
Remote Power Control of PDU
Use the rpower command to remotely power on and off PDU.
To check power stat of PDU:
# rpower coralpdu stat
To power off the PDU:
# rpower coralpdu off
To power on the PDU:
# rpower coralpdu on
Coral PDUs have three relays, the following commands are for individual relay support of PDU:
To check power stat of relay:
# rpower coralpdu relay=1 stat
To power off the relay:
# rpower coralpdu relay=2 off
To power on the relay:
# rpower coralpdu relay=3 on
Show Monitor Data
Use the rvitals command to show realtime monitor data(input voltage, current, power) of PDU.
# rvitals coralpdu
Show manufacture information
Use the rinv command to show MFR information of PDU
# rinv coralpdu
