During initialization, the utility attempts to determine whether BMC communication is reliable by issuing IPMI communication. If this communication fails, the utility displays the message “BMC Communication Failure” and does not provide the Ctrl+E launch option.

Most of the time, you can solve this problem by install new firmware or Open Manage software. The worse case is to replace BMC. I have never seen a replacement so new firmware should take care of it.
