Wind, fire, all that kind of thing!
Load the relevant modules, either via
modprobe or by entering them into
/etc/modules (so they're loaded automatically on the next system startup).
modprobe ipmi_devintf modprobe ipmi_si
Without the modules loaded
ipmitool will complain that it can't find the device it wants to talk to:
Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory
With the modules loaded you can set or change the network configuration of the IPMI interface like this:
ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc static ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr 192.168.23.42 ipmitool lan set 1 netmask 255.255.255.0 ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr 192.168.23.1
