I'm also assuming that "ipmitool chassis power cycle" does an
immediate power cycle, i.e. it doesn't call shutdown first? I could
also try a warm boot first to see if that fixes the idrac. Has anyone
experienced the same issue, i.e. is the idrac supposed to stop working
after an update until a cold/warm boot ?
