Making sense of the response is easier using the MOFs available here:

>From DCIM_LCService.mof:

         [OUT, Description (
           "The Status of the Lifecycle Controller. The statuses include Ready, "
           "Not Initialized, Reloading Data, Disabled, In Recovery, and In Use"),
          ValueMap { "0", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5"},
          Values   { "Ready", "Not Initialized", "Reloading data", "Disabled", "In Recovery", "In Use" }]
      uint8 LCStatus,

The LCStatus tells us that LC is in recovery mode. It is hard to tell why your systems are in this state but reflashing the LC update should clear the issue. You can do this using the InstallFromURI method or by going into USC.

Best regards,

Thanks, Larry !

But after rebooting/reseting the machine

flemming at ip-console3:/scratch/flemming/recite $ /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm -r bird056-ilo -u root -p calvin  serveraction hardreset
/opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm: line 13: printf: 0xError: invalid hex number Security Alert: Certificate is invalid - self signed certificate Continuing execution. Use -S option for racadm to stop execution on certificate-related errors.
Server power operation successful

The LC Remote Services isn't still ready

flemming at ip-console3:/scratch/flemming/recite $ python recite.py IP=root:pwd at target-ip GetLifecycleJobs Set $IP root:******@ Sat Nov 24 11:01:07 2012: GetLifecycleJobs wsman enumerate "http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/root/dcim/DCIM_LifecycleJob" 
-h -P 443 -u root -p ****** -V -v -c dummy.cert -j utf-8 -y basic

   InstanceID = JID_CLEARALL
   JobStartTime = TIME_NA
   JobStatus = Pending
   JobUntilTime = TIME_NA
   Message = NA
   MessageArguments = NA
   MessageID = NA
   Name = CLEARALL
   PercentComplete = 0


Ok, after that i try to delete this pending job

--> DeleteJobQueue
Sat Nov 24 11:22:23 2012: DeleteJobQueue wsman invoke -a DeleteJobQueue "http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/root/dcim/DCIM_JobService?CreationClassName=DCIM_JobService,Name=JobService,SystemName=Idrac,SystemCreationClassName=DCIM_ComputerSystem" 
-k "JobID=JID_CLEARALL" -h -P 443 -u root -p ****** -V -v -c dummy.cert -j utf-8 -y basic

   Message = The job cannot be deleted as iDRAC is busy (a session is open and in use)
   MessageID = SUP007
   ReturnValue = 2

Hmm, than  i reset the ilo

flemming at ip-console3:~/bin $ ipmitool -I lan -U root -P calvin -H bird056-ilo mc reset cold

but without success ... :-(

any hint is welcome  ....

thanks & cheers
