ipmi driver is failing to load because SC1430 does not have a BMC.
You can refer http://linux.dell.com/ipmi.shtml to find the list of PowerEdge servers that have IPMI hardware.

I bought a new dell poweredge (SC1430) and run under debian etch (amd64) and impitool won't work.

Setting up OpenIPMI driver...
IPMI System Interface driver
FATAL: Module ipmi_kcs_drv not found.
ipmi_si: Unable to find any System Interface(s)
FATAL: Error inserting ipmi_si
(/lib/modules/ No such device

I tried to add pnpacpi=off but it doesn't change anything. 
My kernel is a and the ipmi version in 1.8.8-3

Thanks in advance for any advices,

Antoine C.
