Question
I am looking for the RAW command to change the IPMI LAN mode.
There are two different formats for IPMI and I look up the FAQs but I am confused, which format goes with which board?
Answer
There are AMI and ATEN, there are also X8 and X9 motherboards. You need to determine first if you are using X8 or X9 motherboard. Then determine if it's using ATEN or AMI firmware. Here is the list of Raw commands to set the LAN mode:

X8 ATEN

ipmicfg -raw 0x30 0x70 0x0c 0
to set lan mode dedicated
ipmicfg -raw 0x30 0x70 0x0c 1 1 0
to set lan mode onboard/shared
ipmicfg -raw 0x30 0x70 0x0c 1 1 1
to set lan mode failover
ipmicfg -raw 0x30 0x70 0x0c 1 1 2
