000c Remote Access Controller:ERA or ERA/O
So yes, you've got an ERA or ERA/O (which is the equivalent functionality
as the DRAC3 add-in card, only embedded or half-embedded/half-optional).

0009 BMC/SMIC device not present
This may seem wierd to list a PCI device which really means "not present",
but it's true. Your baseboard management controller (BMC) features are in
the ERA/O, you don't have yet another chip for those features. Platforms
where ERA isn't present have a BMC, then you add in the DRAC3 card.

They're present in pciids.sf.net, which gets regularly incorporated into
the kernel. :-) Here are the other entries for server management
0007 Remote Access Controller:DRAC III
0008 Remote Access Controller
000d BMC/SMIC device
We're trying to keep the official lists up to date, honest!
