Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214309
ipmitool displaying incorrect temperature reading on Woodcrest CPU
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:17:52 EST
Description of problem:
ipmitool reports incorrect readings on Woodcrest CPUs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5 on system with Woodcrest CPUs
2. run ipmitool sdr list
temperature sensors for CPU report negative values
Sensors should not be displayed
The Woodcrest CPUs no longer have ambient temperature sensor information
The IPMI sensors have the sensor scanning disabled bit set; ipmitool ignores
this if there is a reading value returned. This reading should always be
ignored if sensor scanning bit is enabled
Created attachment 140528 [details]
Patch for disabling sensors
Can somebody from RH please change the Version field to "5.0.0" from "rhel5-rc1"
as I do not have the permissions to do so.
Important Dell ipmitool fix needs to be in RHEL4.0. Adding ACK flags.
s/RHEL4.0/RHEL5.0 from Sammy's comment #3.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
QE ack for RHEL5.
Can Dell get a test package to regress the fix, please ?
Test packages can be downloaded from here:
Read ya, Phil
Issue is fixed with test packages provided in comment #10.
Even though this has a MODIFIED status, Dell wants to make sure that this is
shipped in 5.0.0 and is fixed their systems. Thus Dell wants it to be a blocker
OpenIPMI-2.0.6-5.el5.2 is now in RC Snapshot 3, so this can safely be marked as
VERIFIED. RH- Please close.
