Now we encounter a problem, after A node with ipmi remote connection address connection, set the vlan from disable error into able, then even not ipmi remote management address, in the local service of esxi host execution ipmi commands, prompt invalid orders, is there other ways to enable remote management of ipmi address.

Besides the Web access to IPMI, in which you can configure VLAN which may not be accessible, there is a direct (non-network) access to IPMI from within the Hypervisor (ESXi in your case).

ESXi and KVM: /ipmitool
Hyper-V: ipmiutil

Particularly for you, this command from the ESXi host might be helpful:
/ipmitool lan set 1 vlan id [VLAN ID : off]

I think the re-configuration required might be answered for you by the following Forum discussions:
