iDrac 7 PowerEdge R720 license information help

Greetings. I have PowerEdge R720 с iDrac

But there are no signs of life, the indicator is off, it is impossible to connect through the web interface

First question, if the license for idrac is missing, should the LED indicate this?

it should burn in color or go out

 

The second question is how to check the installed license for iDrac, because the license was not installed by the service code when buying, iDrac value is 0

528-10002 : iDRAC7 Express

Part Number

KMCM0

Description

INFO,IDRAC7 EXPRESS

Quantity

0

 

The third question is whether this is due to the broken BMC and IPMI, they are both disabled and there are errors on them. LifeCycle Controller is also disabled in POST and unable to update firmware, not system collecting Inventory and BIOS configuration save errors

Hi @Lorenso-Denis,

 

If iDRAC license is missing, it will only indicate when you try to access iDRAC menu. There is no LED indication. In which LED are you mentioning? https://dell.to/3lDumZj

 

Secondly, from the ordering details that you provided, it seems that there is no iDRAC license is purchased.

 

Thirdly, yes, it should be that the OS is not able to communicate with BMC.

IPMI will it also not work?

Then another question, if the Lifecycle Controller is disabled, how to enable it if should be enabled via iDrac?

On boot it shows "LifeCycle Controller is disabled" and no F10. Due to the disabled LCC, it is not possible to update drivers and firmware in Windows, because. the inventory fails and the update terminates with an error. The server is non-fully functional. Fans always full speed

Also present error SWC0700

When installing a trial license for 30 days for iDrac Enterprise is also an error

As I understand it, there was an attempt to update and it costs Bios version 2.9.0 and where is iDrac with LCC, can LCC not work because of this, and if so, how to downgrade LCC to Legacy version

I can’t figure out why the system services of the board do not work, how to enable them, and why the coolers are spinning at a constantly high speed

Lorenso-Denis,

 

With the LCC and idrac showing disabled I would recommend powering down the server, removing the power cables, and then hold down the power button for 20 seconds to drain the flea power. After that open the cover of the server and locate the NVram-Clr jumper on the motherboard (near power supplies connection point to board) and then move the jumper over, after doing so power up the server and complete the clearing of the NVram. Then power down the server and restore the NVram_Clr jumper back to its original location. After that is done then power the server and see if the iDrac/LCC are no longer disabled.

 

Let us know.

Lorenso-Denis,

 

Thank you. 

Are you able to confirm what revision the BIOS, iDrac and LCC are currently at? Also, was anything changed or updated before this issue appeared?

I installed all versions BIOS, and LCC & iDtac there is no way to find out.

Inventory fails. Open Manage does not work, IP iDrac do not get

What are the ways to find out the firmware versions?

Collecting Inventory by OS firmware iDtac & LCC does not show

Hi, personally I suspect this is not a matter of license gone but it seems more like the iDRAC my have been damaged.

Saved iDrac boot log, looks like read/write errors

In this case, LCC &/or System Services won't work either?
