Actually, it seems the sun20 workarounds are working correctly.  You are
able to authenticate.  The problem is ...

This typically means the config of the remote server is invalid.  We've
authenticated all the way through but SOL isn't turned on, so we exit
out.  I will admit, I have never gotten SOL to work on my motherboard
(w/ ipmitool either).  The ability to configure the SOL_Conf section via
bmc-config is broken (atleast in my firmware version).  Perhaps it has
to be configured via other Sun software or via the ILOM interface

This typically means there is an IPMI implementation issue.  Have you
tried the "solport" or the "solpayloadsize" workarounds?  If either
one/both work, we'll just have to add Sun motherboards to the
workarounds list.
