Obtain all LOM mac addresses on iDRAC-less R510?

ipmi-oem from a recent release of freeipmi might work.  Be sure to 
download it from the website instead of through your distro's package 
ipmi-oem -h host -u user -p password dell get-system-info mac-addresses

I also saw that a Dell employee recently sent a few patches to 
ipmitool's mailing list (about three days ago) including dealing with 
MAC addresses, so you may be able to get it off of CVS.

If those don't work, there are some raw IPMI commands you can run to 
figure it out (I can help with that).  If the data is available with raw 
commands, it's very easy to get that added to ipmi-oem.  If the data 
isn't available, Dell needs to fix something.
