>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 &quot;Connection failed.&quot;.<br><br>In my <span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">~/.xsession-errors</span> file I had this:<br>


<br><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">Certificate host:foo-idrac</span><br style="font-family:courier new,monospace">

<span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">m_ksFileName:/home/dkelson/.java/deployment/security/trusted.certs</span><br style="font-family:courier new,monospace"><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">04/24/2012 05:48:07:148:  Connection failed.<br>

<br><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif">I didn&#39;t have a </span></span><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace"><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">/home/dkelson/.</span><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">java/deployment/</span> directory.<br>

<br>To fix this I I did the following.<br><br>Connect to iDRAC7 console from a freshly installed Windows box using java (it worked). Search my Windows home directory for &quot;trusted.certs&quot;, I found it under the &quot;AppData&quot; directory tree. There were actually two files, trusted.certs and trusted.jssecerts. FYI, the Windows box was using Java 7, I don&#39;t know if that made a difference.<br>

<br>Back on my Linux box I ran:<br><br><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">mkdir -p </span></span></span><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace"><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">/home/dkelson/.</span><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">java/deployment/security/</span><br>

<br><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif">I then copied the </span></span><span style="font-family:courier new,monospace"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif"> <span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">trusted.certs</span> and <span style="font-family:courier new,monospace">trusted.jssecerts</span> files from the Windows box to that directory.</span><br>

<br>I was then able to successfully connect to the iDRAC7 console.<br><br>Hopefully this information will help someone else.<br><br>Dax Kelson<br>Guru Labs<br></span></span>
