we have something like 2500 nodes, mostly HP dl145g2's, and have a BMC-wedge
probably 6-12 times/year.  can I ask what brand/model has such flakey IPMI?
if you run "ipmi mc reset" on the node, does it resolve the problem?
I wonder whether flakiness might also correspond to some config or usage
pattern.  (ours dhcp from a local server - actually all the traffic is local.)
