[Freeipmi-users] Dell ipmi-oem chassis slot availability?

I've just learned about the wonders of IPMI this past month and have re-written 
our inventory system from scratch to take advantage of the data the FreeIPMI 
suite of tools provides easy access to. Right now the only drawback is that I 
have to run a secondary script at each co-location to access each of our Dell 
M1000e chassis, running proprietary racadm command over SSH to correlate which 
10g/11g PowerEdge blades are running in the various slots. I've been digging 
through the documentation in hopes of finding either a oem command that I can 
run or even a ipmi-raw command that can be passed to each blade to pull this 
data, but so far I've come up short.

Has anyone on this list been able to identify a method to capture this 
particular information? Dell's OMSA utility also provides the slot information 
as seen in the output below.
