How to access remote console of blades on vrtx

This question is not answered

I have the IP set on the CMC for the vrtx and I can access the CMC webpage. The enterprise license is applied. But I can't find where to access a remote console for the blades.

I see where to set a IP for the idrac of the blades. But if I have to do that, I guess I don't understand how the network ports work on the vrtx.

I have two ports on the back with the wrench, I assume those are a primary and secondary ports for the CMC. I then have what I would call 2 nic pass through for each blade.

So where is the nic for the idracs?

thanks,jb

  • There is no separate network connection required to configure IP address to iDRAC. CMC internally take care providing network connection to iDRAC. Hence only connection to CMC is enough to get IP address on iDRAC. You can go ahead and configure IP address for iDRAC of the blade. Once you configure IP address to iDRAC you can traverse to "Server Overview" page to launch iDRAC GUI and iDRAC Virtual Console.

    Thanks-
