After installing ipmitool and setting the right protocol in the config, a connection could not be established and I got an error about wrong credentials.
Eventually I found out that a # character in my password was the culprit. It seems that it is not escaped in the generated ipmitool command and thus commenting out parts of the password.
I use a different password now as a workaround.
