This is from one of our R730's:
$ omreport chassis info | egrep -i "idrac|lifecy|model"
iDRAC8 Version                           : 2.40.40.40 (Build 45)
Lifecycle Controller Version             : 2.40.40.40
Chassis Model                            : PowerEdge R730

$ omreport chassis bios | grep -i version
Version      : 2.1.7

$ uname -a
Linux login001 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Mar 6 11:36:42 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ dmesg | grep -i bmc
[    3.260988] ipmi_si ipmi_si.0: Found new BMC (man_id: 0x0002a2, prod_id: 0x0100, dev_id: 0x20)

Let me know if you need me to list anything additional.

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] [RFH] Linux warnings about ACPI IPMI and BMC	(recv irq bit)

    Dear Dell PowerEdge users,
    
    
    Installing Debian 9 with Linux 4.9.x and CentOS 7 with Linux 3.10.x on a 
    Dell PowerEdge R730.
    
    In both versions the Linux kernel reports the errors below.
    
    ```
    […]
    kernel: ipmi message handler version 39.2 kernel: IPMI System Interface 
    driver.
    kernel: ipmi_si: probing via SMBIOS
    kernel: ipmi_si: SMBIOS: io 0xca8 regsize 1 spacing 4 irq 10 kernel: 
    ipmi_si: Adding SMBIOS-specified kcs state machine
    kernel: ipmi_si: Trying SMBIOS-specified kcs state machine at i/o 
    address 0xca8, slave address 0x20, irq 10 kernel: wmi: Mapper loaded

    […]
    kernel: (NULL device *): The BMC does not support setting the recv irq 
    bit, compensating, but the BMC needs to be fixed.
    ```
    
    Unfortunately, the Dell support told they can only escalate that to 
    their software team, if this can be reproduced with an operating system 
    installed by Dell, which are Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux 
    Enterprise Server.
    
    Is somebody on this list, who has a server with the operating system 
    from Dell installed and could send me the Linux kernel messages? That’d 
    be awesome!
    
    
    Kind regards,
    
    Paul
