DTK tool racadm can reset DRAC configuration to factory default values.
Command line is - racadm racresetcfg.

To Enable serial over lan you can choose either of the commands given
	syscfg solcfgparams --solenable=enable
	racadm config -g cfgipmisol -o cfgipmisolenable 1

Hope this answers your question.

Is it possible to do this step in an automated fashion? i.e. without
using the Manual Ctrl+E?

Would ipmitool, or syscfg or another equivalent tool have the way of
setting the BMC SOL? I already set the BMC's IP and pasword using

I have ~300 machines so doing this step manually via Ctrl+E is tedious.
