Recently we tried to monitor supermicro's servers power consumption. And got this error:

ipmitool -I lanplus -U readonly_user -H ip_address -P password dcmi power reading -L user

DCMI request failed because: Insufficient privilege level (d4)

If we run it by user with ADMIN privileges it's working. But we would like it to work with USER privileges also.

Other vendors (HPE,IBM) work just fine. Here is an example from hp gen8 server:

ipmitool -I lanplus -U readonly_user -H ip_address -P password dcmi power reading -L user

Instantaneous power reading:                   139 Watts
Minimum during sampling period:                136 Watts
Maximum during sampling period:                236 Watts
Average power reading over sample period:      144 Watts
IPMI timestamp:                           Thu Mar 16 06:54:45 2023
Sampling period:                          00000300 Seconds.
Power reading state is:                   activated

So how do we use user with "USER" role to read dcmi from supermicro ipmi? Is there some proprietary supermicro restriction on that? Can't find any info online.
