I prefer that you don't purchase this model of board: I can even not
use the power
button of chassis. Maybe that you can purchase a newer model.
Thanks for the heads up - but, which board is it? ;-) Do you have a model/reference number so I can check if the ones I am offered are the same as the one you have? I have found a few different ones via google. I would suspect you have athe 3A-RS780 board:

rather than the dual-SoC LS3-CCNUMA-DEV board

but maybe you have something completely different ?

If  IPMI is available, it will be much better.

IPMI would be lovely, but I'm not sure we can locate a board right now with that - so, we may have to fix remote management with a remotely controlled power/reset box - I believe they exist (something else I've been looking into). If the DSA already use some then I'd be interested to hear which :-)

It is also my opinion. Use MIPSIII can make more people use it, and we can
work with some of other unofficial ports.

Hey, agreement! :-)
