Henry,

      There is two way to reset iDRAC password.

  1. Reboot your server. While booting Press F2 to go to BIOS. Then traverse to iDRAC Settings. Here you will get an option to reset root password
  2. Install OMSA on your server and run below racadm command to reset root password

racadm set idrac.users.2.password <New Password>

Thanks-

Can you run below command and let me know what is current iDRAC FW Version installed on the server

racadm getsysinfo -r

Also let me know what is the racadm version

You can try below command as well to set the iDRAC password 

racadm config -g cfguseradmin -i 2 -o cfgUserAdminPassword <New Password>

Thanks-
