Reset Dell iDrac


1.  Shutdown server and remove AC power cords from both power supplies for at least 5 minutes.
2.  Swap the power supplies between bays.  This is recommended to fully drain capacitive power.
3.   Reattach power cords and retest.
4.  If you still have problems, then go into the system BIOS (F2)-->iDRAC settings delete the current information and reset it up.
5.  If you do install OMSA then you can try entering the following commands to see if the iDRAC is responding:
racadm getsysinfo
racadm racreset
racadm racresetcfg (reset iDRAC to default values)
racadm getsysinfo (queries the iDRAC for system information)
racadm racreset (soft reset of iDRAC:  settings are retained)
