Re: BMC configuration PE2850 ipmish
1) On PEx8xx systems (PE2850, for example) DRAC does not have capability to use Side Band NIC traffic and hence cannot used shared mode. Would suggest you to use dedicated NIC and have separate cable for the same.
2) On PE2850 machines ICMP Ping won't work for BMC, hence ping fails while it pass for PE2950.
3) How did you power off the 2850 system exactly, since IP address was giving a problem? Could you please provide detailed steps?
