AFAIK, ipmitool and omreport both returns absolute temperature.
Need to figure out where the problem is:

- OMSA on Cent OS 
- ipmitool
- ipmitool + omsa 
- ipmitool + omsa on cent OS.

I would suggest you try the following:
- omreport chassis temps
Does this return negative values??

I assume you have compiled the ipmitool on your machine.
- Uninstall OMSA and use ipmitool to get the temperature values.
- Use the same ipmitool version from a remote machine to get the temp

This might help us figure out where the problem is.
