I recently purchased a used poweredge 1850 server and it came with a DRAC card. After wiping the HDD and installing ubuntu server 12.04.3 LTS amd64 on it, I am now trying to gain access to the DRAC which I believe is version 4. I have properly configured the DRAC to use it's own IP on my LAN and when I point my browser to the IP address, I am greeted with the DRAC login page (it has the dell logo and everything). However, after trying the credentials of root/calvin, I was denied access. So I think that the previous owners had set their own password. After doing some reading, it appears that I can reset the credentials to the default using
racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i 1 newpassword
but upon entering the command, I get this error:
bash: /usr/sbin/racadm: No such file or directory
This holds true even if I run
prior to running the racadm command.
If, however, I run
sudo racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i 1 newpassword
there are no errors. Yet, when I try to log into the DRAC via the web interface using the credentials of root/newpassword I am still not granted access.
I installed the dell utilities via the guide at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportMachinesServersDellNotes. I first tried to install the 64 bit version that is on the dell repositories, but after that was unsuccessful, I just followed the guide verbatim. No errors were produced in either case. I even followed the information at the bottom of the guide by executing
sudo pppd /dev/ttyS1 1382400 crtscts noipdefault noauth lock persist connect 'chat -v "" CLIENT CLIENTSERVER "\\c"'
but obviously, replacing the /dev/ttyS1 with the correct information for my system.
ls -l /usr/sbin/ | grep racadm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 87930 Sep 16 04:03 racadm
I have tried these credentials after each attempt of changing the password:
All have been unsuccessful. What is the next course of action that I should take?
