Article Summary: This article provides information on DTK may not show BMC version on a system without iDRAC Enterprise.




Question

On PowerEdge™ servers having only iDRAC Express™ and not iDRAC Enterprise™, Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit™ (DTK) may not show the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) version.

Running "SYSCFG bmcversion" does not return the BMC version.

On systems with the iDRAC installed, the BMC version is displayed properly.


Answer

Instead of "SYSCFG bmcversion", running "SYSCFG idracversion" shows the correct BMC version.

A permanent is available in DTK version 3.2 and greater. (Click here for download).
