Hi Vijay,

Are you trying to run the webui locally (e.g. npm run-script server and 
then browse to http://localhost:8080 )?

If so, something more like:
npm install
npm run-script server
BMCWEB_INSECURE_DISABLE_CSRF_PREVENTION and transfer bmcweb to target.
Go to https://bmc-ip and accept the certificate
Go to http://localhost:8080 (could be running at a different port, check 
npm run-script server output) and point at bmc-ip

If you are trying to build the webui for the BMC (npm run-script build) 
and scp the files over, do you need to include the webui package group?


The webui recipe creates the webui directory structure on the BMC.

The warnings should not matter.
