Poweredge 1750 DRAC Access

  • Hello


    I had access to the DRAC on a Poweredge 1750 without any problems until the mother board was replaced.  Now when I try to login it does not recognise the default credentials of root, calvin.


    Is there a back door account to login or another means to reset the details?





  • Bump...

    I need an answer for this too. All of a sudden the default password of calvin stopped working. When we try to reset the password via the software method, we get a reply to say "RAC not installed". We can access the web interface of the drac fine but can't log in and need  a way to reset the password. Any ideas??? This is on a PE 1750 as well.

  • Download DSET and see if its recognized when it creates a report.

    You can also try reseting to defaults: open up a command promt adn type: racadm racresetcfg

    Download and install the latest firmware, there is a possibility that the firmware will have to be updated in order for the new mobo to recognize the drac
