Hi Al,

one of our customers monitors his Supermicro servers with FreeIPMI (with
both Nagios using the plugin, and also using cacti). As both Nagios and
cacti are monitoring the machines, it could be that two IPMI requests
reach the BMC at the same time.

For two systems (with X8DT3-LN4F and X8DTL-3F mainboards) he gets many
times the following error:
        ipmi_ctx_open_outofband: BMC busy

As it works for other systems, I assume that this could be a hardware

But I just wanted to know what the possibles reasons could be for such
an error ("BMC busy")

Best regards,

PS: for the SR1625 question I got know feedback yet. I assume that the
new beta works, but this customer can tell me for sure in about two
weeks (than he can test the current beta)
