Hi,

I just updated the idrac firmware on an R710 :

####
[root at gluster1 idrac]# sh IDRAC6_FRMW_LX_R271693.BIN
Collecting inventory...
....
Running validation...

iDRAC6

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently
installed version.
Software application name: iDRAC6
Package version: 1.50
Installed version: 1.03


Continue? Y/N:Y
Executing update...

Update Successful.

But now I can't connect to the idrac. Did the settings on the idrac
basically get blown away so that it doesn't remember what static IP I
had set for it? How do I set the idrac ipv4 settings without going
over to data center? Can I do it from Linux? I was looking at this :

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/software/smdrac3/idrac/idrac1.11/en/ug/html/chap02.htm#wp95392

but it doesn't look like it's possible?

Thanks,
Sabuj
