To support our MicroTCA (AMC) module developments, and for diagnostic investigations in MicroTCA systems, we found a need to develop tools to exercise the IPMI functions of Management Controllers within the system. Based on the freely available ”ipmitool” program, we built a framework which allows to communicate with AMC Module Management Controllers through the Shelf Manager's network interface, without need to tap an IPMB. It contains functions to exercise various IPMI transactions and to check integrity and correctness of FRU (Field Replacable Unit) information and other data structures published by Management Controllers. The general structure of the library will be presented, as well as first results and future plans.
