Use this utility to ping the i series and it should return the mac address also unless your switches block mac arp packets

Your iSeries should be using a static IP address outside the range that you assign to DHCP. No system using DHCP should ever be assigned that address.

Of course, if a second system is attached and it uses the same static IP address, the same conflict can happen. It's somewhat irrelevant that DHCP is involved except that the iSeries (probably) shouldn't be using it.
