Did I mention to install an smpd daemon (is AFAIK net-smp Package in RH 8.0)

racadm getsysinfo 
delivers system Informations stored in the rac

the easiest way (for me) is: first get the rac.cfg file via 
    racadm getconfig -p -f rac.cfg
edit the line in rac.cfg
  # cfgUserAdminPassword=
to:
  cfgUserAdminPassword=newpassword

and then set the new password
racadm config -p -f rac.cfg

I haven't used racconf...

Check following things:
- is the esm kernel-module build correct and loaded?

lsmod delivers:

Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: P
esm                    67274   1 

- is the device-node for the esm created, /dev/esm0 and a link to it:
 [dev] #ls -l EsmDev esm0
 lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 Feb 28 13:57 EsmDev -> /dev/esm0
 crw-rw-r--    1 root     root     253,   0 Feb 28 13:57 esm0
 
  should be done automaticaly by the dellomsaesm start-sto script
  
- is your snmpd up 
- there should be three services from dell now running:
  (they are started via the dellomsa start-stop script)
  dcstor32d
  dcevt32d
  dcsnmp32d

if these conditions are true, racadm should work correctly.
Since I use debian here on my Box, the installation was a bit
different, and I can not say if this works with your kernel. I tested it
with RH8.0 and 2.4.18-14smp (I think this was the standard smp-kernel from
RedHat 8.0)

get your sysinfo with:
   racadm getsysinfo
