Hi Martin ,

Scientific Linux  is not officially supported OS  and  you can use below workaround to update BIOS on your system

1.      cp -p /etc/redhat-release /etc/redhat-release.org

2.      echo " Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)" > /etc/redhat-release

3.      run update_firmware --yes

Thanks,
Rathish

To: "linux-poweredge at dell.com" <linux-poweredge at dell.com>
Message-ID:
        <CAG2kNCz+KDgZ-PNhKUgYfWYLM6SjfB=m1fFOYO+00xZg4uvJ4A at mail.gmail.com>

Hello,
anyone using RHCS and idrac7 as a fencing device?

I'm deploying RHCS on RH EL 5.8 and fence_idrac5 doesn't work.

I found a technote from Red Hat (175603): the specified environment is RHEL 6 and the solution seems to use fence_ipmilan agent.

There is also a warning regarding OMSA:

"
Please be aware that there is issue when using Dell OpenManage repository. Dell repository will overwrite IPMItool with a version that does not support the LanPlus protocol. This will lead to fencing failing if the fence_agent is configured to use encryption.

As a workaround please remove the systems from the Dell OM channel after installing the OM tools "

Is this still true? What version of OMSA is supposed to work and integrates with a Dell R720 and iDRAC7?

Thanks in advance,
Gianluca
