A pre-release (unsupported) driver that should resolve the problem is

The same problem applies to xen and power edge 2900.
Does anyone know when there will be a bios update, to get ipmi on the
nic working with xen?
The wiki reports that dell is working on a update which should be
released in fall 2006, now its 2007 - no update there, any progress
news?

kind regards

Torsten
