Hi:

I am trying to see how many sensors are supported by Dell, using ipmitool
sdr.

And, I get the following:

I mean, for some of the sensors, I can get the actual number, but for other
sensors, I only get 0x01.
For example:

1.5V PG          | 0x01              | ok
1.8V PG          | 0x01              | ok
3.3V PG          | 0x01              | ok
5V PG            | 0x01              | ok

Actually, I don't know what does this 0x01 mean. I mean, if Dell supports
1.5V PG and so on,
ipmitool sdr should be able to get the actual number of it.

The actual number which represents the current voltage or temperature is
very important to us,
so, could someone help me figure it out?

PS: The server is Dell PowerEdge R710, and we have Cent OS on top of it.
