Update -- and hopefully this may help others as well. The issue was caused by an older version of the OpenManage Essentials.  There is a new version of OME available that supports the Dell EMC 14th generation PowerEdge servers.

@CENX - At the moment there isn't a global "select all option" but is under consideration for a future release.  As noted, there are Racadm commands to help set alerts.  Another great option is to use the Server Configuration Profiles (see the white papers on delltechcenter.com/idrac for details on SCP.)   Basically, once you have gone through all pages and chosen the alerts you are interested in, you can capture all these details in an SCP (this as well as every other setting on the server) and use that profile to fully configure a bare metal server in minutes.  Please feel free to contact me directly if you wish doug_iler@dell.com thanks - Doug iDRAC Product Manager

@surfarn The Nessus test is liable to produce false positives. It attempts to run a command, “sleep 10”. It then checks for the response taking more than 30 seconds. The problem with this test is that anything that causes the request to take longer can be counted as a positive. The DRAC is a very slow processor by modern standards, and can take a while to respond for a number of other reasons.   Internally, we have tested this exact exploit and changed the “sleep 10” to a “touch /tmp/EXPLOIT”, which should produce the observable result of creating the file /tmp/EXPLOIT. Running the exploit attempt and then logging into debugging mode, we can verify that we are in no way affected by this exploit. We have also run code audits to ensure that nowhere in our HTTP stack are we ever running bash, so it is simply not possible to exploit the shellshock vulnerability using any HTTP request. Hope this helps. Doug Iler, iDRAC Product Manager

Cameron - Good news - iDRAC8 actually has a very wide range of RAID options without having to install OMSA/OMSS or revert to a pre-os environment.  iDRAC8 with PERC9 allows you to do perform real time configuration commands without a reboot -- for example, create a virtual disc.  We should have white papers out on this topic soon, but until then, please see the iDRAC8 User Guide. thanks - Doug

Hello gnelson - we appreciate your help and we'll continue to do what we can to help figure this out.  Are you running remote Racadm on both?  Guessing you are, just need to confirm.  Engineers are a tad puzzled on this one since they don't have issues on either the 720 or 620.   We may need to share both sets of scripts/commands, and it's possible there is a config settign somewhere that's tripping this up.   Doug
