Our Ironic need an utility tool to do the out-band auto-discovery the IPMI physical node and auto-register to Ironic. We send the IPMI request to the inputted IPs or subnet, based on the response, if target is IPMI node, the reply indicates whether the device supports version 1.5 or 2.0 and what forms of authentication are supported.  So we can use these IP/MAC to create ironic node to auto-register them. If use provide the IPMI credential, we can verify it and auto-config to our node info. The driver should be pxe_ipmitool or pxe_ipminative which can be another input for user.

And at the same time, we can check arp list to get the IPMI MAC address which is used to register node.
