No, there's an optional Lan management port that works with RSA II (ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/systems/support/system_x_pdf/44r5189.pdf) adapter card for out-band management, and is currently not used. The two bce's are built-in w/ the board and are hooked up with a different controller. In-band mechanism is used for the baseboard management system.

Is there any connection with SMM? Thanks.

Is bce1 hooked up to the BMC in hardware (i.e. you can use it for remote 
IPMI?)  In that case it might very well result in the logs you are seeing.
