Err... plugging a cable into the IPMI port and then let it grab an address with DHCP is not exactly the most complex provisioning task. By contrast, the NOC noggin is far more likely to incur higher costs by accidentally prodding the wrong box than the total cost of the cables, switches and infrastructure required for this.
