On an R720 I am trying to change the power setting through the drac via ssh.
I can get the setting but my syntax is wroong in tring to set the setting.
Here is my get:
/admin1-> racadm get BIOS.SysProfileSettings.ProcPwrPerf
And here is my set:
/admin1-> racadm set BIOS.SysProfileSettings.ProcPwrPerf MaxPerf
ERROR: RAC1025: The specified object is read-only and cannot be modified due to
an object dependency.
Verify the object dependency using "racadm help <device
class>.<groupname>.<objectname>", and retry the opearation.
What is wrong with my syntax?
Before setting "ProcPwrPerf" you need to make sure 'SysProfileSettings.SysProfile' object is set to 'Custom'. Check below command for details
racadm help bios.SysProfileSettings.ProcPwrPerf
To set SysProfile to custom, run following racadm command
racadm set bios.SysProfileSettings.SysProfile Custom
After this command you will be able to set "ProcPwrPerf" obeject. Once you set both object you need to create a Job for BIOS and reboot/powercycle the server to apply the setting
To create a JOB for BIOS run the following racadm command
racadm jobqueue create BIOS.Setup.1-1
To Power Cycle the server run following command
racadm serveraction powercycle
Thank you Shine!
I will also be modifying a few other settings via racadm commands such as BIOS.SysProfileSettings.ProcCStates and BIOS.SysProfileSettings.ProcC1E. Will that single jobqueue command cover all three changes?
Yes. One single jobqueue command can be used for applying all setting for BIOS. This is depend on device. E.g. if you want to configure NIC attribute then you need to create a seperare job for NIC.
One more thing. Can I make the changes, set the job and then let it sit in that state for a few days before the reboot?
Also if I need to do I BIOS update as well can that be done at the same time allowing a single reboot to handle both or do they need to be done separately with two reboots?
Yes. You can wait for few days before rebooting the server for applying the BIOS setting. You can also apply BIOS setting and BIOS update same time.
