7.164. OpenIPMI

Updated OpenIPMI packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The OpenIPMI packages provide command-line tools and utilities to access platform information using Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). System administrators can use OpenIPMI to manage systems and to perform system health monitoring.

Bug Fix

The kernel ipmi_msghandler and ipmi_si modules are no longer delivered as standalone modules. As a consequence, an error occurred if these modules were used independently. With this update, the OpenIPMI init script has been modified to enable IPMI service operations on a kernel with ipmi_si and ipmi_msghandler statically compiled in the kernel. Also, the service status message now includes a new "in kernel" module state.
Users of OpenIPMI are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
