RE: iDRAC6 Virtual Console (Connection Failed)

I have updated the example with a script that you can run under MacOS/Linux.

Tested with jre-7u79-macosx-x64.

Your instructions are excellent, but they did not work for me. No fault of yours though. For some reason, the DRAC is refusing connections on port 5900. I see the SYN packet go out and the RST packet come back from the DRAC. It is an iDRAC6 Enterprise. Any idea why it is not listening on port 5900?

I followed ITOrtiz's steps. In my case, I had an additional issue that the DRAC car simply was not listening on port 5900 or 5901. Doing 'racadm racreset hard' did not help. I had to power the server off fully, including the DRAC. After that, it worked.

I updated firmware from 1.95 to 2.85. Now when I click on Launch Virtual Console. Nothing happens.

Zero. None. Null. I tried on Chrome, Firefox, Windows 10, Ubuntu 17.04. Turned off adblock

XBB,

Thank you for making the .bat file. 

Your program worked for me using the latest jre. There were a few caveats:

I had to copy the files to the java folder in program files(x86). I wasn't completely sure if this was the case based on the structure you provided on github.

I had to rename the jre folder so that it just reads jre. (originally jre1.8.0 changed to jre).

The .dll files were .jar for me.

Once I figured out the correct file structure, the program worked like a charm.

Hello everyone,

I just bought two refurnished IDRAC6 Enterprise for my out of warranty R710s.  iDRAC works good, and is dedicated and not shared.  Networking is plugged into the iDRAC port.  I cannot do a virtual console.  I get a connection failed. I have put the IP of the iDRAC in the Exception Site list of Java config.

Not sure what else to do.  But there is no support for my R710, nor for these newly purchased enterprise cards.  Curious if anyone has suggestions?

Thanks,

Michael

Had the same issue today on a recently updated iDRAC6 - Enterprise.

Before Update: Firmware v1.0.0
After Update: Firmware v2.90

I didn't reset the settings during the Update. Just afterwards.
This seems to have corrupted the upgrade somehow.
I flashed it threw the WebUI both times.

My solution was to simply reflash v2.90 over again with reset settings enabled.
The console applet just works fine now.

re-enable SSv3 support on java

Go to Java installation folder.
Open {JRE_HOME}\lib\security\java.security -file in text editor.
Delete or comment out the following line "jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3".
