RACADM is already executing message

I am trying to run racadm commands on a RedHat 5 server and I get the message that "RACADM is already exectiing". 

e.g.

racadm getsysinfo

 

One Instance of Local RACADM is already executing. Exiting the current session.

I have stop and restarted OMSA and reset the DRAC from the web interface to no avail.  Has anyone else seen this issue and/or offer a solution ?

Thanks

Re: RACADM is already executing message

in case someone else stumbles across this issue

rm -rf /var/run/local_racadm.pid

the location of local_racadm.pid may vary depending on your flavor of Linux

once this file is removed, racadm commands should work again. it worked for me in all 10 of 10 cases i had. the pid likely got locked by a previously failed racadam command or an unresponsive os or something.

hope this helps!
