I have a Dell R610 server with the iDRAC 6 Express remote management extention. The problem is that this thing is using the NIC1 interface in some kind of shared mode. Dell is talking about NIC teaming which should be enabled on the operating system side. On Windows this is managed by the Boardcom Software if I'm correct but I have no idea to enable this with Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of setup. I'm sure there is a easy solution but I just can't figure out why I can't reach the iDRAC via the ip address I set up. Next time I will buy the server with the Enterprise version of iDRAC which has a dedicated NIC.
