The most likely issue you're hitting is a bug on many Dell Poweredge
motherboards.  If you use this workaround, "-W ignorescanningdisabled",
it should work around.  Short description of the workaround, the Dell
motherboards say that a sensor is disabled, but in reality it isn't.

Other possibilities may be that sensors need to be bridged
(--bridge-sensors) or shared sensor outputs need to be enabled

I'm unsure why ipmi-sensors -v would work.  Would you mind showing
examples of the differences.
