Yes this is about bmc-config. I'm trying everything inband. Strangely
the current bmc-config works fine. I"m rewriting bmc-config in C.
So i'm guessing i'm missing something. But i see no difference between
the current bmc-config and the new one w.r.t ipmi calls.

"return an error". ALL subsequent calls, both 2.0 calls and 1.x calls.
I"m guessing probably the ipmi_device_t got 'closed' somehow?

xeon dual core 32bit 3ghz. its the host.

no, i'm doing only  inband.

the current bmc-config works fine. Most probably its an issue with the
code and not the hardware.
