is there a time line when a new/updated Version of OMSA or the Raid Controller Part will come which supports the H740p Raid Controller in our new Dell PE R640 servers?

Hi Andreas,
This platform and controller is supported in OMSA- 9.0.1 version and this version is already available in Dell support website.

ipmitool seems to be working fine against IPv6 addresses on another system:

ipmitool -I lanplus -H fc00:1101::10 -L ADMINISTRATOR -U admin -R 3 -N 5 -P password power status Chassis Power is on

No can do, this is something IPv6 specific I have to get working

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] increase in SNMP timeouts with DRAC
	2.50.50.50
Message-ID: <0b5601d35fa6$0caeaba0$260c02e0$@gmail.com>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

 

I've started installing DRAC 2.50.50.50 on R620 and R720xd systems.

 

On both systems on which I've installed it, I've started seeing a HUGE increase in the number of SNMP timeouts.

 

On one system, the timeouts seem to have cleared up, after multiple resets, and disabling/enabling the SNMP agent multiple times.

 

But on the other system, resetting and re-enabling SNMP didn't seem to help.

 

Anyone else seeing this problem?

Hello,

is there a time line when a new/updated Version of OMSA or the Raid Controller Part will come which supports the H740p Raid Controller in our new Dell PE R640 servers?

Kind Regards,

Andreas
