You don't.  DHCP is enabled by default so you would need to check upstream switch/layer3 device for the IP/MAC.  Otherwise reboot the ISE server with a monitor connected, the CIMC IP will show during boot.

@ahollifield  is right - the ISE application could in theory provide this information because the host OS (Linux in this case) has IPMI access to the CIMC. This would be a nice feature request to the Cisco ISE BU. In fact, when you contrast ISE with Clearpass, there is a lot that ISE should be displaying in the GUI, and just plain doesn't. It means too many trips to the ISE CLI, which is a waste of everyone's time. 

According to this posting, if you had access to the host OS (e.g. Linux or Windows) on a UCS server, then you can install the UCS Utilities and extract details about this CIMC.
