I assume you should be able to configure the NIC thru IPMI (quote from
... "go to ipmi panel and choose "share" for "Lan Interface" ...).
Btw, after you finished resolving the issue and collecting facts, please
consider filing a Problem Report with FreeBSD - that device hint disabling em0
and bringing down both em0 and em1 interfaces should be looked at by devs,
I guess - after all, they should be two independent net ports, as they have
two distinct MACs.
I believe you said em0 is LAN, and em1 is IPMI.
