Hi,
I guess this is a quite common question... and that it's probably
somewhere in the docs but I couldn't find the info I was searching for.

I've 51 Poweredge 1855 into 6 racks.
from what I understand all nodes have an IPMI 1.0 module and each rack
has a DRAC5 interface.

It seems the DRAC somehow lost their configuration since I joined the
project (my predecessor who left the building did the
install/configuration).

I'm at a point where I can't reach the DRAC (they seem to have no IP,
not even the default one).
I'm trying to get to configure them using a serial console (with a
serial to usb cable on a node)

from what I can find in the docs:
baudrate 57600 / No Parity / 1 stop bit.
which translates to:
stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 57600 cs8 -cstopb

when trying a screen /dev/ttyUSB0 57600, all I get is junk (non human
readable characters)
I tried rebooting the whole rack system but It didn't got any better.

I'm sorry for the stupid questions but I'm at loss here, how can I reach
those DRAC?


thanks in advance,
guillaume ranquet.
