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.

you can perform it via hypervisor console
vSphereroot@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 ipsrc staticroot@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 ipaddr mgmt_interface_ip_addrroot@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 netmask mgmt_interface_subnet_addrroot@esx# /ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 defgw ipaddr mgmt_interface_gatewayHyper-Vipmiutil lan -I mgmt_interface_ip_addr -G mgmt_interface_gateway -S mgmt_interface_subnet_addr -U ADMIN -P ADMINAHVroot@ahv# ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 ipsrc staticroot@ahv# ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 ipaddr mgmt_interface_ip_addrroot@ahv# ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 netmask mgmt_interface_subnet_addrroot@ahv# ipmitool -U ADMIN -P ADMIN lan set 1 defgw ipaddr mgmt_interface_gateway
