i'm playing a bit with collecting some data through IPMI on dell 1855
and 1955 blade servers.
everything works fine for me (after some digging in the documentation,
papers, internet ....), but i found something, that i doesn't like.
It seems that on pe1955, bmc nic needs its own ip address, it cannot
share it as 1855 does it. In linux i see that NICs has different mac
address than BMC nic and i found nothing in bios that looks like it
would change this behavior.
Am i doing something wrong? or is this feature of IMPI 2.0 protocol?
I forgot to mention that i'm using RHEL5 on both types of machines.
Thanks for any help,
