How to reset BMC/ESM on PE1750

I have unknown 'ESM Version' as shown below, and when server is booting
during POST screen it's written:

	Embedded server management is not present

but it is present, and I cannot communicate with it. Is there any way to
reset it or is it possible that ESM/BMC got broken even if DRAC is working?
I already tried to unplug the server from power and wait 30 seconds.

Is there a way to replace it if I have spare servers which
are in our broken servers pool, but have good mobo?
