Yes.

Turn off ACPI on both machines, or else IPMI will try a "graceful"
shutdown, which is exactly what you do *not* want.  If the machine is
dead or hung, it may not respond to the ACPI request at all.

Change the kernel command line to include "acpi=off" and chkconfig --del
acpid

Note that with IPMI, you should use the NIC with IPMI for only IPMI
traffic (or at least separate IPMI traffic from the cluster traffic), or
it can become a single point of failure.
