I have a PowerEdge 2900 in production and I'm trying to configure iDRAC. I have a known good network connection plugged in to the Ethernet port with the wrench symbol next to it. The lights light up on the port.
When I access Dell OpenManage I don't see a remote access option under Main System Chassis.
On initial boot, before I see anything else, I do see the message "Remote Access Controller Detected". Normally I'll see a prompt to press Control-D or Control-E to managethe remote access controller. Not on this server though. the boot continues normally showing the SCSI cards and the Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet Boot Agent. Next I see:
Remote Access Configuration Utility 1.28
Baseboard Management Controller revision 2.37
Primary Backplane Firmware Revision 1.05
Flex Bay Firware Revision 1.05
Baseboard Management Controller Communication Failure
Now Windows starts to load.
I tried pressing CTRL-D and CTRL-E when the Remote Access Configuration Utility launches but nothing happens. I don't see any screen prompts asking to press anything to manage the RAC utility.
My BIOS version is 2.6.1 so I should have all the iDRAC updates that were released in the prior BIOS update.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
