There might be an option in the bios setup to disable IPMI or give it
a static address.

And are you really sure it is from this machine?   If you
disconnect/shut down, do both IP's stop responding?  If you can't
trace the wiring from the switch port you are checking to the host,
maybe there is an intermediate switch/hub with some other device.
