Help with VRTX CMC configuration via Powershell and cert management

Hi, 

I was looking for assistance configuring 30+ vrtx CMCs, specifically the snmp community string, root pw reset. I didn't find anything good when I searched the forum. I am currently using the iDRAC-Redfish-Scripting modules for configuring our idracs. I'd like to find something similar for cmc. 

The other thing I need to look into is scripting cert requests and installs. 

Thanks,

J

Jg1000c,

I would suggest you start with this page here, it will provide you with the information you are needing to use Powershell. 

Also, if you like you can send me the svc tag of one of the server, so I know about what hardware you're using. 

Hope this helps.

Re: Help with VRTX CMC configuration via Powershell and cert management

I got snmp configured following these instructions. I just took out what I didn't want to configure (same thing I do for the idracs with xml file). 

[idRacInfo]

[cfgOobSnmp]
cfgOobSnmpAgentEnable=1
cfgOobSnmpAgentCommunity=test
cfgOobSnmpProtocol=ALL
cfgOobSnmpTrapFormat=SNMPv1

  1. racadm getconfig -f myfile.cfg
  2. Modify the configuration file using a plain-text editor (optional). Any special formatting characters in the configuration file may corrupt the RACADM database.
  3. Use the newly created configuration file to modify a target CMC. At the command prompt, type:
    racadm config -f myfile.cfg
