well, first, does your motherboard *HAVE* an IPMI management module, and 
if so, does it use a  dedicated ethernet port, or is it 'piggybacked' on 
eth0 ?   the behavior shown could be the latter.

I'd look in the system or motherboard documentation for this...   
depending on the IPMI module, it may have a web or ssh interface, or it 
may require another system contact it via an 'ipmitool' of some sort.   
It probably has an initial user/pass like admin/admin which should be 
reconfigured during system configuration and deployment.
