Change IPMI network settings from Prism?

The default gateway in IPMI network settings was set incorrectly on a block of 3 nodes when they were deployed.  As a result, I cannot reach the IPMI configuration web page to change the gateway.  Is there any way, other than physically connecting a KVM and configuring the IPMI at device bootup, that I can change the network settings for IPMI?  Can I do it from within Prism or from any of the CVMs?  It is not easy to physically access this datacenter where the device is installed.

root@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 ipaddr mgmt_interface_ip_addr
root@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 netmask mgmt_interface_subnet_addr
root@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 defgw ipaddr mgmt_interface_gateway
Hyper-V
ipmiutil lan -I mgmt_interface_ip_addr -G mgmt_interface_gateway -S mgmt_interface_subnet_addr -U ADMIN -P ADMIN
