It is easy to write a simple wrapper around bmc-lan-set tool to
automate the configuration process. You can then run bmc-lan-set-auto
across the cluster in one single command.

# bmc-set-lan-auto

if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
         echo 1>&2 Usage: $0 ETHERNET-DEV
         exit 127

IFCONFIG="/sbin/ifconfig $1"

MAC_ADDR=`$IFCONFIG | awk '$4=="HWaddr" {print $5}'`
IP_ADDR=`$IFCONFIG | awk '$1=="inet" {gsub("addr:", "", $2); print $2}'`
IP_MASK=`$IFCONFIG | awk '$1=="inet" {gsub("Mask:", "", $4); print $4}'`

bmc-lan-set $IP_ADDR $IP_MASK $MAC_ADDR

Also note that, bmc-lan-set and similar tools are temporary releases
for system admins to automate building of thunder. 
FreeIPMI actual release will include a single tool to configure all
parameters of BMC. You will have options like --auto to take care of
issues like these.
