Maybe yes, I don't remember.

That's probably a newer version than the one I used:
updatefw.x86_64 version 1.1 (build 0609071)
Usage: updatefw.x86_64 -f [Firmware File]
updatefw.x86_64 -i [IP Address] -u [Usr] -p [Pwd] -f [Firmware File]
e.g. updatefw.x86_64 -f newfw.bin
updatefw.x86_64 -i 192.168.1.23 -u ADMIN -p ADMIN -f newfw.bin

Neither do I, at least in kernel space. :) I used the kernel's standard IPMI
AFAIR the difference between the ubsim* and ugsim* versions are that the
latter one can also speak encrypted IPMI. But Supermicro docs/FAQ tells this
exactly, don't rely on my vague memory. :)
