Having an issue with a new R710 where I cannot enable IPv4 on the iDRAC card.

I have tried enabling IPv4 and setting static IP, Gateway ect however when saving the settings it fails. This has been done using the Dell Setup Disk & during boot (ctrl+E).

Dell OpenManage Server Administrator has been installed on the box which I can see the DRAC card is enabled (has mac address ect) but in the Remote Access - Additional Configuration menu I am not able to set IPv4 to enabled. Each time I click apply changes it reverts back to Disabled.

Bios ect are all up to date. Any help would be appreciated.

More Informatin; Device Type: iDRAC6 Enterprise IPMI Version: 2.0 System GUID: 4a35364f-c0c8-3480-3410-00364c4c4544 Number of Possible Active Sessions 5 Number of Current Active Sessions 0 Enable IPMI Over LAN: No SOL Enabled: Yes MAC Address: BC-30-5B-E9-CA-CF


its a new machine, why don't you contact dell support?

  • Yes... also check the cable is plugged in to the IDrac NIC. – ITHedgeHog Dec 7 '11 at 9:50
  • it can share the first NIC - a matter of config – dyasny Dec 7 '11 at 11:14
  • Got it sorted by rolling back the firmware. Thanks. – Ben Dec 7 '11 at 11:45
