[Poweredgec-tools] C6100 and IPMI/DRAC hang ups

Have you tried flashing the BMC form another node in the chassis?
I get about 2% chance of hangs per month and flashing the BMC has managed to kick the BMC back into life again.

Kind regards,

We regularly run into situations where the out-of-band management functions get hung up.  I haven't seen anything in the logs and so far the only reliable way to resolve it so far is a complete chassis reboot.  Anyone have an idea where to start looking to resolve this?  We are running various versions of Centos 6.x.

One item of interest, we use puppet to manage these nodes and we have a manifest which checks and if necessary resets the IP and auth data on the DRAC every hour.
