hi Chitrak,

some time ago i have tried with racadm from linux cli [ one that comes with 
omsa ] and i was getting errors in communication with drac. i cannot quote 
exact message - sorry.

right now i have one hanged drac on a system with vmware esxi - i guess my 
only option is live cd. when i will be rebooting it i will take closer look 
at bios - most probably - as you write - there is bmc error reported. what 
i rember is that in hang case - there is no separate drac bios / menu message
during the bootup.

i have this problem both on 1950 and 2950 1st and 3rd gen. i will forward you 
on private address report from dset that i run recently upon request from dell's
support.

thanks, regards
/Pawel
