I put a DRAC that has not been used in a long time into a PowerEdge 1750 running CentOS 5.8.
Because we run our DRACs on a separate network, we don't change the password from the default (root/calvin), but evidently someone changed this one.
I tried the regular command line reset (
racadm racresetcfg), but I get the following error:
ERROR: Unable to perform requested operation.
If the operation attempted was to configure DRAC, possible reason may be that
Local Configuration using RACADM is disabled.
This implies to me that
racadm is able to communicate, but there is a setting on the DRAC that is preventing it from working.
I was not able to find any references to this error in any Dell documentation.
Has anyone seen this problem and/or know what I can do about it?
(The DRAC is useless is I can't log in to it.)
