FreeBSD IPMI on 6.1 no longer works on our Dell SC 1425 (which is a 
somewhat older model) after the latest Flash BIOS upgrade (which we 
needed for other reasons), loading the modules yields

ipmi0: <System Management BIOS> at iomem 0xfa830-0xfa84e,0xfa850-0xfb356 
on isa0
ipmi0: SMBIOS Version: 2.03, revision: 2.03
ipmi0: KCS mode found at io 0xca8 alignment 0x4 on isa
ipmi0: couldn't configure smbios io res
sio1: configured irq 3 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio1: port may not be enabled

Are you seeing something similar (or something at all), when you load 
the module?

We have a PowerEdge 1800 which gives similar results, but I am not sure 
if that is running the latest BIOS or not.

Cheers, Martin
