We weren't made aware that the newer servers were coming with a later rev
board, and a customer came along asking for 30 some servers to be ordered
"yesterday". The servers themselves work OK otherwise, for the most part.

FWIW, this particular IPMI problem would not have appeared at all if we
only ordered one server, since multiple servers are trying to grab the
same IP/using the same MAC.
