My only uncertainty is about giving the local CPU the ability to receive events from the BMC - while at the same time allowing it to send commands. I've looked but can't seem to find an "event handler" capability, other than SEL functions. Does freeipmi provide such a function? > Let me know if you are struck some where. _______________________________________________ Freeipmi-devel mailing list Freeipmiemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freeipmi-devel _______________________________________________ Freeipmi-devel mailing list Freeipmifirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freeipmi-devel
