Yes, the iRMC talks most protocols you need, at least it talk IPMI.
Configure a user for fencing in the iRMC with the following rights:

LAN Privilege:  OEM

the following fence device should work (with the user and password from above
action of course).

<fencedevice action="reboot" agent="fence_ipmilan" lanplus="1" auth="password"
login="somelogin" name="ipmi" passwd="somepassword"/>

To be complete, you should also install net-snmp and the Serverview Management
Agents on the host(s), then the iRMC will know more about you're system, and
will detect ECC's or other errors correctly.
