>From my Fedora 16 Linux workstation I could successfully connect to an
iDRAC6 console, but when I attempted to connect to an iDRAC7 console, I got
a popup with "Connection failed.".
In my ~/.xsession-errors file I had this:
OS Ver: 3.3.2-1.fc16.x86_64
04/24/2012 05:48:07:148: Connection failed.
I didn't have a /home/dkelson/.java/deployment/ directory.
To fix this I I did the following.
Connect to iDRAC7 console from a freshly installed Windows box using java
(it worked). Search my Windows home directory for "trusted.certs", I found
it under the "AppData" directory tree. There were actually two files,
trusted.certs and trusted.jssecerts. FYI, the Windows box was using Java 7,
I don't know if that made a difference.
Back on my Linux box I ran:
mkdir -p /home/dkelson/.java/deployment/security/
I then copied the trusted.certs and trusted.jssecerts files from the
Windows box to that directory.
I was then able to successfully connect to the iDRAC7 console.
Hopefully this information will help someone else.
