Running some tests I can say for sure that the x4100M2 ILOMs are really
really bad :-( When running a while-true loop for "bmc-watchdog -s -k",
the x4100M2 will shutdown after at latest 2 hours and stay powered-off.
When running the loop with "bmc-watchdog -r" it takes 5-6 hours but
then the machine is powered off, too.
Kind of strange watchdog that can shutdown the machine when you reset it :-(
Another thing for Sun to fix...
