[Freeipmi-devel] Free IPMI Capabilities?

Dear Sir or Madam;

I work at the TSD of a Server Motherboard Manufacturer/Reseller.  We often run into issues where end customers, corrupt, or alter, the BMC CHIP Firmware, e.g. forgotten password, MAC Address issues, such that they end up requesting that we send them another BMC chip, with their board's MAC Addresses, pre-configured in the CHIP.  This is a laborious task, first having to download the firmware, flashing the chip, via EPROM device, then installing the chip in a compatible machine, then resetting the info in the chip to factory defaults and finally confirming via router DHCP Table the validity of the process, e.g. MAC Addresses displayed.  

May I ask if your tool suit, Free IPMI, has the capability of modifying a BMC Firmware Binary File, prior to flashing on a chip such that the the final firmware modifications will have the end user's MAC Address information embedded thereby avoiding the above nightmare scenario?

If this is not possible, do you know of any open source software to accomplish this?
