Find IP of DRAC Card

Is there any way to find the IP of a DRAC card without rebooting to the configuration screen?  We have one host we can't boot and would like to configure the card.

If OMSA showed an IP address of 0.0.0.0, then either somebody set it that way, OMSA is not communicating with the DRAC, or there is something wrong with the DRAC.  If the "racadm setniccfg ..." command doesn't work then a good next step is reseating and reflashing the DRAC.

Thanks for posting! Install OMSA if it isn't there already.  Then open a command prompt and type:

racadm getniccfg

It is like typing ipconfig, except it will just pull the NIC configuration for the DRAC.  If the IP address is not what it should be, you can use this command:

racadm setniccfg -s ipAddress gatewayAddress subnetMask

The addresses are separated only by spaces.

In addition to excellent advice from Jeff, you can find IP through the GUI,

Open OMSA console, go Main System Chassis - Remote Access - look at the DRAC section of the screen.

IP will be listed there,

I followed this instruction

"In addition to excellent advice from Jeff, you can find IP through the GUI,

Open OMSA console, go Main System Chassis - Remote Access - look at the DRAC section of the screen.

and found the IP is 0.0.0.0 :(

Please advise how to retrieve it back. Thanks a lot.

set your DRAC network configuration:

racadm setniccfg -s ipaddress subnetmask gateway

example:

racadm setniccfg -s 192.168.10.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

My ip is not working since last week when I open the cps test site. What could be the reason I use Dell Laptop. If you have information on this, please let me know.

thanks in advance
