I have SuperMicro 1U 6016T-MTHF with Winbond WPCM450 BMC server. Here's my problem:

Here I can see 'VTT' sensor, but this command fails:

root@foo:~# ipmitool -I open sensor get VTT
Locating sensor record...
Sensor data record "VTT" not found!

All other sensors work fine. Any Ideas why that single sensor is not working?

why not like: ipmitool -I open sensor |grep 'VTT' –  Bart Oct 4 '11 at 12:24
    
Because I have munin script that parses this data. I'll have to rewrite it to use that command. Also it's writed in python and I don't know it. –  Poma Oct 5 '11 at 11:08

On my system the sensor is called System VTT and doesn't work either... byt when I put space after VTT it works - it can be the same trick on yours :-)

# ipmitool -I open sensor|grep VTT
System VTT       | 1.137      | Volts      | ok    | na        | na        | na        | na        | na        | na        
ipmitool -I open sensor get 'System VTT'
Locating sensor record...
Sensor data record "System VTT" not found!

doesn't work but:

ipmitool -I open sensor get 'System VTT '
Locating sensor record...
Sensor ID              : System VTT  (0x8f)
 Entity ID             : 3.6
 Sensor Type (Analog)  : Voltage
 Sensor Reading        : 1.137 (+/- 0) Volts
 Status                : ok
 Lower Non-Recoverable : na
 Lower Critical        : na
 Lower Non-Critical    : na
 Upper Non-Critical    : na
 Upper Critical        : na
 Upper Non-Recoverable : na
 Event Status          : Event Messages Disabled
 Assertion Events      : 
 Event Enable          : Event Messages Disabled
 Assertions Enabled    : unc- 

does work as expected.
