I'm currently really thinking about returning that board and searching for another one, not having proper BMC is really bad.

I imagine there really was no point for the design of this board to include any sort if GUI KVM thing, all of the software is either remote controlled or CLI anyway, and a SoL session is more than enough for that.

The only place you really could need a KVM via the BMC is if you run bare-metal Windows.

That might be true, but there is no real reason for ASRock (And Akamai) to remove the GUI. And I've never seen the BMC actually respond to any ipmitool requests through the external ip. We will only know for sure if someone dumps the firmware.

but you see on the BIOS POST screen the BMC get a IP like this right ?

Yes, I see the BMC get an IP.

But the problem is the following:

IPMI Static IP on screen is "192.168.178.97"

My router shows me a device with an ASRock MAC address. The IP is 192.168.178.144

Only the 192.168.178.144 is reachable via ICMP and responds to SSH.

That is really weird and I've had hundreds of Systems with BMC and I never encountered something like this.
