Hello Al,
 I want to thank you very much for your pointer to -x option to the plugin.
It works as billed! Now I just have to resolve why I can't gain access
while using the -f /path-to/ipmi.cfg and get an error:
/usr/local/sbin/ipmi-sensors: password verification timeout

But if I use the same info with -U, -P and -L options, it authenticates
I read about the CentOS 5 issues, but I am using CentOS 6 on one machines,
and Windows on another.Any thoughts there? Thanks again,
