Find IP of DRAC Card

This question is not answered

Is there any way to find the IP of a DRAC card without rebooting to the configuration screen?  We have one host we can't boot and would like to configure the card.

  • Thanks for posting! Install OMSA if it isn't there already.  Then open a command prompt and type:

    racadm getniccfg

    It is like typing ipconfig, except it will just pull the NIC configuration for the DRAC.  If the IP address is not what it should be, you can use this command:

    racadm setniccfg -s ipAddress gatewayAddress subnetMask

    The addresses are separated only by spaces.

  • In addition to excellent advice from Jeff, you can find IP through the GUI,

    Open OMSA console, go Main System Chassis - Remote Access - look at the DRAC section of the screen.

    IP will be listed there,

     

    HTH,

    "In addition to excellent advice from Jeff, you can find IP through the GUI,

    and found the IP is 0.0.0.0 :(

    Please advise how to retrieve it back. Thanks a lot.

  • set your DRAC network configuration:

    racadm setniccfg -s ipaddress subnetmask gateway

    example:

    racadm setniccfg -s 192.168.10.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

  • If OMSA showed an IP address of 0.0.0.0, then either somebody set it that way, OMSA is not communicating with the DRAC, or there is something wrong with the DRAC.  If the "racadm setniccfg ..." command doesn't work then a good next step is reseating and reflashing the DRAC.
