iDRAC script

Hi all,

I`ve been successfully using a slightly altered version of this script to change various iDRAC settings. I`m unaware of having anything changed in our environment to prevent me from using it, however it stopped working since a while.

For instance I launch this command "racadm -u root -p ***** -r xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx set system.location.rack.name test" from my PC, it will successfully update the parameter.

However, I use the script to update the same parameter (running it also from my PC), the output will be "ERROR: Unable to connect to RAC at specified IP address", although in the lifecycle logs I do see the following: "Successfully logged in using root, from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and RACADM"

Could somebody help me out?

Hello.

In the iDRAC web interface, set Network to Shared MODE and try again.

RE: iDRAC script

Hi Robert,

You mean to LOM(1,2,3 or 4) instead of Dedicated? This way I`ve only lost connectivity with the drac, since it obtained a different IP address. Anyway, I`ve modified the script to target the new IP, but the result is the same. 

And besides all this, we have thousands of servers, so it`s not a viable solution.

Thanks
