    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,
