This might be a silly question, but... Is there any hypervisor or other virtualization solution which supports a "virtual IPMI" for virtual machines? I.e. would allow access to something that looks like power control, a serial-over-lan console, etc. to a virtual machine.
This is really not the right way for managing virtual machines, I know. I'm looking for this because we make heavy use of IPMI for systems management and it would be interesting/useful to integrate VMs into the same framework, and because it'd be useful to have such an interface when I use VMs as a dev environment for systems management tools.
