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,
