I was just about to respond to my own message that I tested both old and new freeipmi versions on old and new install and found that on centos 5 things work fine regardless of freeipmi version and on centos 6 things don't work also regardless of the freeipmi version pointing to the OS as the culprit.

After reading the FAQ entry I installed OpenIPMI to get the init script, started it to get /dev/ipmi0 and now bmc-config works as expected. Not an ideal situation I agree.

Thanks for the pointer this helped me a lot!

I've complained to Redhat about this heavily.

Sorry for not getting back earlier with a response. I tried dumping the
config with --debug and now it aborts with these kinds of error messages
at random points during the output depending on where it aborts:

ipmi_cmd_get_user_name: internal IPMI error

internal IPMI error

fiid_obj_get: 'cipher_suite_id_entry_A': data not available

On an older installation (centos 5) on the same hardware with freeipmi
1.0.2 I cannot reproduce this issue. I'm going to build a package with
1.0.2 for the newer installations (centos 6) to see if this fixes the
issues there as well. This might give an indication if there is
something wrong with the systems/bios/etc. or freeipmi.
