Description

We have a new BMC firmware for the FreeNAS mini / asrock motherboard. We will need to craft an alert that does the following:

Detects if they are on BMC firmware < 0.30.0 "ipmitool mc info" && are on FreeNAS mini "dmidecode | grep FREENAS"

The alert should probably point the end-user to an errata notice that contains updating instructions from here:

2 questions:

is BMC 0.30.0 released? i don't see those on asrockrack site.
you can share sample if you have one ;)

and why warn only FreeNAS Mini users? There are other users that have same board.
maybe more failr solution will be grep motherboard model ?

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 15 bytes
Base Board Information
Manufacturer: ASRock
Product Name: C2750D4I

I'd like to add that showing the alert for C2550D4I users as well would be appreciated by them.
