Dell EMC iDRAC Service Module 3.1 User’s Guide

Remote iDRAC hard reset

Using iDRAC, you can monitor the supported servers for critical system hardware, firmware, or software issues. Sometimes, iDRAC may become unresponsive due to various reasons. During such scenarios, you may have to turn off the server by plugging it off from the socket, after which the iDRAC can be reset.

Using the Remote iDRAC hard reset feature, whenever iDRAC becomes unresponsive, you can perform a remote iDRAC reset operation without the need to shut down the server. To reset the iDRAC remotely, ensure that you have administrative privileges on the host OS. By default, the remote iDRAC hard reset feature is enabled.
