I unfortunately do not have any Dell hardware to test with. I've only
used ipmi-kmod with Supermicro IPMI modules and motherboards. It looks
like there have not been any significant changes to the IMPI code in
- -CURRENT recently that might fix this, either. I do see a note in the
"Fixes and Enhancements" section on the latest BIOS download page from
Dell for the SC1425 that says "Added Native IPMI support," so they
definitely did something.
