RacAdmin Quick and dirty cheatsheet

iDRAC racadm quick and dirty cheatsheet. racadm command can be issues via iDRAC/CMC/OS if svradmin-racadm is installed. Also you can specify -h option to access remote servers RAC as long as you have network access. Also if you are having problems with racadm “Failed to initialize transport” install openssl-devel. full documentation for iDRAC7 can be found here.

% Get all iDRAC settings in a file

racadm get -f config.txt

If you like you can change the contents of config.txt and apply it back to iDRAC

racadm set -f config.txt

% Set password for root user

racadm set iDRAC.Users.2.Password PASSWORD"

% List all ssh keys for root user

racadm sshpkauth -i 2 -v -k all

% Add ssh key to root user

racadm sshpkauth -i 2 -k 1 "CONTENTS OF PUBLIC KEY"

% Delete ssh key for root user

racadm sshpkauth -i 2 -d -k 1

% Get iDRAC IP config

racadm getniccfg
racadm get iDRAC.NIC

% set iDRAC IP

Using config command:

racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgNicEnable 1
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgNicIpAddress x.x.x.x
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgNicNetmask 255.255.255.0
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgNicGateway x.x.x.x
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgNicUseDHCP 0
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServersFromDHCP 0
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServer1 y.y.y.y
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServer2 y.y.y.y

• Using set command:

racadm set iDRAC.Nic.Enable 1
racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.Address x.x.x.x
racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.Netmask 255.255.255.0

racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DHCPEnable 0
racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNSFromDHCP 0
racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNS1 y.y.y.y
racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNS2 y.y.y.y

% Set iDRAC DNS Name

racadm set iDRAC.NIC.DNSRacName iDRACNAME

% Set iDRAC domain name

racadm set iDRAC.NIC.DNSDomainName DOMAIN.NAME

% Set iDRAC DNS Server

racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServer1 x.x.x.x
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServer2 y.y.y.y
