#enum_instances OMC_IPMIIPProtocolEndpoint root/cimv2 | grep IPv4Address

The output will be whatever IPv4 IP that was assigned at deployment.

Quick article I know but too many times i’ve had people ask me what is the iDRAC IP for a particular host. I am taking an educated guess I am not the only one.
