Redfish Server/IPMI Control




Cinegration Developments Redish IPMI Control Driver allows customers that manage servers to obtain the current status of their server as well as perform the powering on and graceful shutdown of their server. This can be especially useful if you have any servers off site or in a separate room that you would like to power down or turn on. The driver features feedback of the current power state of the server. You can easily change the power state of your server via a simple combination of button presses via a Control4 UI Button. One button press will bring up a Confirmation dialog on the UI Button to ensure that you want to perform the action. Following the confirmation dialog, the next button press will complete that action.


What is Redfish? Redfish is a much needed update to the IPMI standard that provides a much easier way to interact with our servers/computers, as well as provide us with a much richer set of information than with the previous IPMI standard. We can pull just about any type of data from a server via the Redfish standard.
