Re: [Freeipmi-users] bmc-config : Unknown section `User11'

Internally, bmc-config uses that number of users a motherboard supports
to determine what configurations specified by the user are legal or
illegal.  In your case, the 10 user motherboard will issue an error on
"User11" b/c it is illegal for that machine.

There isn't a flag to change this behavior at the moment.  I have
created an issue to investigate this as an option.

Most users of bmc-config have per-motherboard configurations, so this
use case isn't very common.  One idea: the sections in the config file
don't have to be in order.  User11-User16 could be at the end of the
file instead of earlier in the file.  If you had a conf file with only
user11-user16, this could be appended to the end of a "generic" conf
