I have DRAC5 installed on a PowerEdge server running CentOS. I'm able to SSH into the DRAC and issue racadm commands.
When I issue
I briefly see a prompt:
A second later the screen goes blank and my quit key sequence does not work (neither does anything else - screen is unresponsive to all keys).
After closing out of the terminal and logging back into racadm for a second try with
connect com2, it shows:
connect: com2 port is currently in use
After resetting racadm I can again try to connect com2, but get the same thing as above (blank/unresponsive screen).
Here is my config:
# racadm getconfig -g cfgSerial cfgSerialBaudRate=57600 cfgSerialConsoleEnable=1 cfgSerialConsoleQuitKey=^q cfgSerialConsoleIdleTimeout=300 cfgSerialConsoleNoAuth=0 cfgSerialConsoleCommand= cfgSerialHistorySize=8192 cfgSerialCom2RedirEnable=1 cfgSerialTelnetEnable=0 cfgSerialSshEnable=1
I'd like to be able to view the console to remotely enter a password on an encrypted system.
