Hi, I have a problem with a very old version of iDrac 6, i need to update the ssl certificate because don't let me access by gui, but when i try to update the certificate by cli i cannot. the weird thing is that when i type racadm help only showed me the following

You need to set Common name and other fields before creating CSR from iDRAC. You can run the command "racadm getconfig -g cfgRacSecurity" to get details on these attributes. To set Common name you need to run below command

racadm config -g cfgRacSecurity -o cfgRacSecCsrCommonName <Common Name>

You can refer "cfgRacSecurity" section on page 285 of below link for more details
