When resource discovery fails, either because of bad hardware or network problems, the OpenHPI ipmidirect plugin logs the following error message

ERROR while discover MC ..., giving up !

and does not create an RPT or any RDRs for the resource.

From an HPI User perspective, it looks like there's nothing there. Which is not accurate.

It would be better to create a resource for it, placing it into a Failed Resource state (M7). This would better allow users to take action.

This is using openhpi-2.10.2.
