I'm having trouble specifying the lanplus interface for the ipmitool program. I issue a command such as ipmitool -I lanplus -U USER -P PASSWORD -H sol activate and I am given the following error: Error loading interface lanplus. When I try the command: ipmitool -h, lanplus does not appear on the list of interfaces. This makes me think I have not configured my ipmitool installation correctly (I used yum to install OpenIPMI and OpenIPMI-tools) or I am missing a package. What am I missing to get the lanplus interface to be recognized by ipmitool? Thanks.

Well reconfiguring and making from source did the trick (used the latest on sourceforge). Lanplus is available now.
