The PowerEdge-RAC perl package does display the MAC address of the ERA 
port with the call from the examples directory.
You call it remotely at a host which has an ethernet connection to the ERA 


is a real example. You have to grep it - output is very long (almost 
everything the ERA is able to tell).
