I am having problems finding the proper way to change the default
password on a DRAC 5.
I found references to having to use the racadm tool, and issuing:
# racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i 2
I figured out how to install from the dell linux repos.
I was just trying to play with it a bit to get familiar, and I am
getting an error:
[root at backup ~]# racadm getconfig -g cfgUserAdmin -i 2
ERROR: RACADM is unable to process the requested subcommand because
there is no
local RAC configuration to communicate with.
Local RACADM subcommand execution requires the following:
1. A Remote Access Controller (RAC) must be present on the managed
2. Appropriate managed node software must be installed and running
What do I need to do to get it running?
Or is there a simpler way to just change the default password?
