I don't seem to have the racadm command suite available, is it a bundled extra I need to install?

True, and this is the same command to pass (racadm racreset ) when a firmware upgrade of DRAC fails in order to get DRAC working again...I had the problem when I tried to upgrade from an old firmware to the most recent one, I finally had to upgrade the DRAC using each intermediate firmware to reach the latest one ;-((

We always had problems with the DRAC5 on our 1950s (same s 2950s really, aren't they?).

 

Try issuing a racadm racreset (I think) on the server itself if you still have SSH access.

G'Day All,

 

I had 9 DEL2950 servers in a rack behind a firewall, all with working DRAC interface and this week I moved them out to a data center, I can log into the DRAC interface but the console redirection now fails with "Attempting Connection"... it was working for 2 months before the move, being used every day by myself so I didn't have to walk to the consoles but now the servers are live, it fails on all servers. No IP change, no firewall rule changes, I'm really puzzled as to what it is..

 

Any ideas.... Anyone???

 

Sid
