I find it hard to believe that something as common as IPMI in
conjunction with the IPMI technology wasn't tested in Intel's lab. From
my experience with Intel Server boards, onboard IPMI (all offered
versions) and e100/e1000 NICs, I've never ever experienced any problems
operating the BMC over the NIC. Also, I don't quite understand you point
about the "IPMI card sharing the 100Mbit/s NIC" onboard? What exactly is
shared?

Best regards,
