I need to configure an RSA in one of our domain controllers.  I don't want to take it off line.  Is it possible?

I'm hoping for some utility or something that can be run from Windows.  But based on past experiences with IBM, I'm not counting on it...

IBM suggest to remove power cable to install RSA because some servers require the external power-supply adapter (which comes with the Remote Supervisor Adapter) to provide the needed power for full functionality of theRemote Supervisor Adapter. So the default answer would be "NO"
Although you can sucessfully plug the card in with no power surge, you still need to update firmware at the reboot... so the best way is upgrade it on the weekend or off hours. Check this guide if you have not done so.

The card is already physically installed.  I just need to find out if it has already been configured (get the IP) or configure it (set an IP).

Ah ha!  One of the other engineers stumbled across the MPCLI utility (Management Processor Command Line Interface Utility).

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/eserver/v1r2/index.jsp?topic=/diricinfo/fqm0_r_mpcli_overview.html

Looks like this will do exactly what I want.  Apparently the syntax would be as follows (once you launch the utility):

setip -interface 1 -ipaddress x.x.x.x setip -interface 1 -gateway x.x.x.x setip -interface 1 -subnet x.x.x.x resetoutput restartmp

Now to try it out :)

If the card was plugged in, I am sure you can configure it without interfere your server's operation.
