[Poweredgec-tools] bmc node_number method?

Each node has a BMC that communicates with the Chassis FCB.  That FCB will tell each BMC what node it is dynamically.

The BMC tool sends a special command to the BMC to ask it where it’s been told it is sitting.

So, it should reflect current live location.

How does the bmc tool determine the node position in a C6100?

(root at ob1065132:~)# bmc node_number

Is it burned into the BMC somewhere at the factory or, if a node is replaced/moved, will it somehow get updated to reflect its' new position
