Changing the ERA password Joshua_Giles at

I believe it's something like this:
racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i <index> <user
racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i 1 123456 

I don't have a box with a DRAC card in front of me, but I believe that is
the correct index for the administrator.  Doublecheck by doing a
'racadm getconfig -f <configuration filename>'

The documentation for the ERA/O cards can be found @ the
site documentation for your server.  Just look for OpenMangage software then
Remote Access Controllers.  The racadm Util documentation is found under the
Drac III users guide.
