Console redirection to BMC with a PE2850

is it possible to redirect the console output to the BCM and so access
it remotely via ipmi on a PE2850?

For example this command

# omconfig chassis biossetup attribute=conredirect setting=com2

fails miserabily. Moreover the BMC on that machine doesn't support
lanplus so it seems that accessing it remotely it would be anyway
impossible? Is there something I can do?
(I had no problems with newer servers)

Thanks in advance
