IPMI timeouts for Dell R630 machines?

R630 is definitely a supported server.
Look like it autodetected OK, if you have those settings in the GUI.   One
quick thing you might want to check is in the iDRAC -> Network Settings,
scroll near the bottom and make sure that "IPMI Over LAN" is enabled.
When you tell it to commission, do you see the R630 power on?   You should
also be able to click  "Check Power" at the top of the GUI page and see it
change to green Power On after a few seconds.
