Our conservers share the same conserver.cf using crond and cvs.
The nice part is being able to 'console myserver' on any of the conservers
without knowing which console is being served by which conserver.

Fair enough, but conserver isn't intended solely for linux/rhel so I guess

It's an expect tcl script.
I tried these sunoem sshkey ipmi commands on some X4500 without success.
Also Sun promised some development to be made for IPMI SOL to work, but I
wouldn't expect too much from their side.
