Dell Precision 7920 Tower IPMI capabilities

Hello, I am unable to get system sensor details and wanted to know about compatibility and enabling them. I have installed ESXi 7.0 u3 (free) on a Dell Precision 7920 Tower running Intel Xeon ® Gold 6130 processor. How can I enable monitoring of temperature? Will lack of this monitoring by ESXi affect system life/performance? Or will the UEFI/BIOS increase fan speed as needed? What drivers do I need to install and how to get this to work?

In the host monitor hardware system sensors show this alert. “This system has no IPMI capabilities, you may need to install a driver to enable sensor data to be retrieved.

Thank you.

Your thread needs moving to the area for ESXi or vSphere Hypervisor, I've reported it to moderators so it should get moved.
