Dell agrees that this is a U2 MUSTFIX.  Amit:  please add to your list.

Removing RHEL3 IT_74119 reference from this bug since it's a RHEL4 BUG.

IT 71661 has the patch to resolve this for RHEL4.
Comment 6 Matt Domsch 2005-06-22 09:06:45 EDT
Changing to reflect that IT 71661 is the proper IT for this, and closing IT_74561

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 138592 ***
Comment 9 Matt Domsch 2005-08-16 00:02:30 EDT
Jason, I don't see how this can be a duplicate of 138592.  They may have the 
same resolution (an updated ipmi driver set), but they're two different 
problems with the same driver from what I can tell.
