Yes, same here - I've done some experimentation on a node with IPMI and 
shared port and it was pretty horrible to get working properly.

What software tools are people using to manage IPMI? I've dabbled with 
some vendor tools and being underwhelmed, and some of the tools that 
come with Linux seemed to half-work (maybe thats the norm?).
