Hi Al,
* It is still maintained.
* BMC-Autoconfig is not a GUI wizard for bmc-config. It is supposed to
 ask minimum questions from the user and automatically configure the
 BMC with known defaults. It is intended for users without any
 knowledge of IPMI to quickly get a basic working setup.

* It does enable LAN and configure NULL, admin, operator and ipmiuser
 accounts. See the template file, you will get an idea what all it
If you have suggestions to improve, let us know?

I'm thinking of dropping this from FreeIPMI:

A) It doesn't seem to be maintained by the original authors.

B) It apparenly only configures 3 fields of the BMC.  No users, lan
enabling, etc.

I don't really see the use anymore.  Any comments?  Anyone out there using
