How well do you find that the NetMGT stuff works?  We're short on IPs
(sorta) so it makes more sense for us to use serial ports to manage
these boxes.

I'm using the default login, and since it only seems to be 'admin'
with full privs:

    sc> usershow
    Username         Permissions      Password
    admin            cuar             Assigned

Ok, maybe things have changed since then.  And maybe I've got it setup
that it thinks it's got the network management port setup properly.
Not sure...
