Choosing the NIC(s) for IPMI is not a general configuration of IPMI;
that's going to be a vendor/hardware specific setting (if it can be done
at all).  Different vendors have different methods of configuring which
NIC(s) have IPMI access.  You won't be able to configure that with
ipmitool; it'll typically have to be set in the BIOS and/or BMC boot
configuration menus.
