thanks a lot for your help. Somehow I missed the authcap workaround, I alreay 
tried the sol*. In the end one has to specify 
-W authcap,solpayloadsize

This a RS162-E4/RX4 barebone and I think the mainboard is called DSBF-DR12/SAS 
(according to dmidecode).

Which of these exactly? Wouldn't it be useful to simply try the authcap 
workaround if "invalid user" was returned?

I still have a problem, though. As with ipmitool sysrqs don't work, although 
sysrqs are generally enabled. Do you have an idea what might be the problem?

Thanks again for your help,
