Re: Error loading open interface with ipmitool

I'm trying to set up IPMI on NetBSD 5.99.24 amd64 on a Dell PowerEdge R210.
I installed ipmitool from pkgsrc, but the open interface isn't working.

For example,

# ipmitool -I open
Error loading interface open

I've successfully installed and used IPMI on RHEL5 using the same machine,
so it must be something involving NetBSD.  Any ideas on why this isn't

Hi Zack,

Admittedly I haven't used ipmitool until reading your post, but I don't see "open" as being an available interface in the -h output; only lan and lanplus.

I've just given it a try on one of our 2950's (obviously not as shiny and new as your R210) and the following command worked for me:

ipmitool -H <drac ip> -U <drac user> -I lan sdr list
