One motherboard (Z9PR-D12) - 2 questions (Force OnBoard VGA and IPMI)

I build a one server for Truenas at home. The system is build on an Asus Z9PR-D12 MoBo. I love the spec but I hate 2 issue with it.

  1. As I have a P600 GPU for plex transcoding with no monitori plugged on it, I would like to force display on OnBoard GPU. I cannot see anything when system boot. The monitori display something only when the OS (TrueNas Scale) is fully booted and display the CLI prompt. I cannot find anything in BIOS
  2. I cannot use the iKVM. When I connect to Web interface, in Remote Control preview, I can see “Web Preview Is Not Available, Due To Kvm Service Is Disabled” and service is Enabled/Started. When I click on Launch button (with java logo), a file start to download (jviewer.jnlp) bu I have a download error, so unable to launch it.
    Firmware Revision: 1.11

Any help would be very apprediated.

I have never worked with any Asus server boards so I can not offer much help on that.

With respect to the IPMI/BMC the issue may be due to the age of the java app. I had an old HP DL360 G7 that would only work with an ancient version of java in IE.
