How to read "identify" button press event, or state of "identify" blue led with IPMI?
 
I have some servers manufactured by Intel. They have on boar BMC controller, and I can do some diagnostic or power management with OpenIPMI and FreeIPMI tools.
Servers run under CentOS 4 and CentOS 5.

Is there a way to know about on server was pressed "identify" button?
This button fires on and off "identify" blue led in front and back panel.
I can light on this led with IPMI by issuing command
Code:

IPMI_PASSWORD=mypassword ipmitool -I lan -H host -E chassis identify 600
Now I have reverse ask: to know on what server this button was pressed.

Any suggestions?
