When tool fails to probe IPMI devices, I thought of displaying examples of calling the tool with appropriate default values. Anyway I'm completely OK with your changes.
I would like to add --defaults option to ipmi-locate and the tool will display default values when this option is passed. Just let me know your thoughts.

If you don't assume the IPMI defaults, then do you assume the user must also input the address/registerspacing/etc. into the inband tools? Otherwise probing will always fail. > > I've reverted this change, because I have a machine which has no probing information.
