Is there a way to remotely power on a PowerEdge 2900. I can ping the ip address that the BMC was set to, but I don't know how to access it. I've used ports 80, 443, and 1311. What port should I be using? Can I telnet in or just http? Once in, is there an option for power on?
It should use port 623. However, you can use the IPMI shell. There are versions for both Windows and Linux. See the IPMI docs. Once you're logged on, I think you want the
power on command.
You need a DRAC interface card. Do you have that? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell_DRAC
