Check the current power state:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -a chassis status
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa power status

Set the device to PXE boot:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa chassis bootparam set bootflag force_pxe

Chek the boot method:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa chassis bootparam get 5

Boot:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa power on

Force hard disk boot:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa chassis bootparam set bootflag force_disk

Connect to Serial-Over-Lan:
ipmitool -I lanplus -H 10.0.0.1 -U ADMIN -P aaaa sol info
