R610 iDRAC. Integrated?

I assigned a static IP configuration to several R610 via CTRL-E.  None of these machines have the installed optional iDRAC business card.

For love or money, I cannot ping these machines, and I've tried everything.

However, my question is this.  IDRAC Express is integrated into the R610?  I think it is, but for the moment (multiple machines) it seems that it does not work.  We plan to buy the company card shortly, but it would be good to at least use the Express feature until then.

Either incidentally, EACH server reports 'No active LOM found' at the moment.

Thank you.


Hi markgu,

The R610 come with the iDRAC6 express. You have connected NIC1? It's the NETWORK card used in shared mode. The upgrade of the company supports the dedicated NETWORK adapter port.

  • iDRAC on Dell R610 problem


    I just got a new Dell R610 and I tried to configure the iDRAC on her card. I have it configured on interfaces of multiple T300 Dell and the ILO on the different models of HP servers successfully. But for some reason, I'm going to have serious problems with it.

    I think he got an iDRAC Express card as there is no extra ethernet port on the server, just the standard 4 integrated NETWORK interface the iDRAC BIOS are version 1.70 I understand is the last.

    Today technician Dell replaced our motherboard and this fixed a problem with the DRAC.

    New motherboard uses older versions of BIOS and DRAC BIOS main:

    principal: was 3.0.0, now for 2.0.11
    DRAC: was 1.70.21, now 1.41.13

    DRAC works now, and, Yes, she has the web interface.

  • iDRAC Active Directory integration


    I recently tried to integrate all our DRACs here with Active Directory to connect this way, rather than a generic username and the password shared by several employees. I downloaded the Dell Remote Access Configuration tool and it works beautifully. It is able to define the appropriate settings for many DRAC allow AD users to sign everything at once.

    However, there is a slight problem that I can't seem to understand. On the DRACs 11 of the ~ 50 that I have configured this way, credentials fail. I thought maybe I was just fat-fingering the keys, but after having several people try both the holiday and work DRAC, there seems to be a problem with the way those 11 have been configured.

    I did every configuration run in groups of about 10, and within each group, there was 1 or 2 that just did not work properly. After you have compiled a list of the 11 who did not work properly, I even tried to run through Setup once again, does not. And looking at the information provided to me, there is nothing to differentiate these from another ~ 40 who succeeded. There is so much iDRAC6s and iDRAC7s, and there are several different firmware versions. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that if I have a card DRAC of the same type in the 11 that don't work, there are one of the same type, version of the firmware, model and in the 40 ~ that work. So, I can't see the problem.

    I hope this is enough information to find someone has begun to help solve my problem. If anyone has any questions or suggestions, I would be very happy to have in your.

    Thank you


    Hello Jacob

    If there was a problem with one or two iDRAC, I would say that this could be a hardware problem or a problem with a bad firmware image. Because what is happening across a large percentage of your question iDRAC is probably with the configuration of your network or security. I suggest you to check your network configuration to ensure that the iDRAC who have problems is able to communicate properly with the advertising server.

    If you feel that there is a problem with the iDRAC so I suggest firmware reflashing, reset the default values and then reconfigure one of the iDRAC problem manually to see if the problem persists.

    Thank you

  • IDRAC 6 - reboot


    I have Dell R610 run ESXi 5.0 with 11VMs.

    I tried to get the IDRAC GUi of web information in the tab 'inventory of the system', but it goes on to say: hardware inventory is not available. Try again at a later date.


    I want to restart the IDRAC and I want to know if restarting is possible without having to restart the ESX host and assign the virtual machine running on the host.

    My IDRAC is to version 1.99.

    In other news, I have another server, it is R710 and running the same version 1.99 Idrac, and from there, I can get the information from memory perfectly without any problems.

    Thank you in advance



    Yes it is possible, you can restart the iDRAC, through the iDRAC GUI or, for example, with the racadm racreset.

    This restart iDRAC and let the operating system.

  • Configure the IDRAC settings without having to restart the server

    We have a dell r610. I put an IP address in its idrac last night and ping it, then powered by the server. Today, I can't ping the IP address of the idrac. Put aside from getting to the site, restart the machine and go into the settings of idrac way, is there a way you can access these settings and make changes while the server is in place?

    Hello Roger

    Yes, as long as you have a way to access the system. If you have the operating system remotely, you can install OpenManage Server Administrator. OMSA has an iDRAC section where you can change the IP address of the iDRAC.

    OMSA installation also installs the RACADM tools, so you will be able to execute RACADM commands as well. You can use the RACADM commands to perform all the tasks that you can do so via the GUI, some which are not available in the GUI.

    When you get OMSA is installed, you can check the status of the components of the system. If you see any problems then I would suggest that your first troubleshooting step be restart iDRAC. You can restart the iDRAC independent of the system, there will be no interruption of service to the server when you restart the iDRAC. The command RACADM to restart the iDRAC is:

    racadm racreset

    The command RACADM to iDRAC default configuration is:

    racadm racresetcfg

  • Unable to update firmware DRAC6 past 1.10.13 on R610


    I have a number of R610s I need to upgrade the DRAC firmware, so you can talk to our new management system. Most of them updated correctly when I left versions gradually 1.10.13 (their version) to 1.97.

    About 7 of them, however, will not move past 1.10.13. I have the version of the 1.11 firmware available via TFTP; When I try to install this (via idracadm, starting from the local operating system or a separate box or through the administrative SSH console) I get first "Firmware update is not current" then 'Firmware update operation failed' when subsequent attempts until I have make a racreset. I tried clearing space by removing the logs of the system, I have done a factory reset, drained flea power and the problem persists.

    I also tried to update from the Dell Repository Manager bootable media as shown here http://lonesysadmin.net/2011/03/07/the-easiest-way-to-update-a-dell-servers-firmware/. No joy.

    Finally I tried the update to a new installation of CentOS; the upgrade appears to start but is never-ending; fwupdate s presents 'The Firmware update Operation failed'.

    Is there any other approach, or y at - it logs I can check what goes wrong?

    Thank you!


    The first things that I would look into what version of BIOS and the lifecycle of the R610 controller run. If you do not update those in tandem with iDrac you may encounter problems of this kind. If they're behind then I test this on one of them and get the BIOS and the LC caught up and see if after a racadm racreset and NVram clear as the iDrac allows you to update.

    Also, have you tried to update the iDrac tab to update the iDrac with the firming.d6 file? To do this, for example, you download the iDRAC6_1.97_A00_FW_IMG.exe file and run it on a Windows system to extract the files, then find the file firming.d6 and save. Use it in the iDrac GUI tab updated. Now, I know that it is the current file name, so to keep walking until you need the 1.11 and so on.

    These are the current versions, if you are far behind in these institutions, I recommend walk them up as well.

  • R610 back after reboot fan noise

    Hi everyone, please help... I don't know what to do anymore.

    Since I bought a few R610 units I tried to make the server less noiser and 2 weeks ago, I though that I nailed... but no.

    I managed to update the firmware to idrac Server version 1.96, just after I updated the firmware fans resigned from 8000 RPM to 4500 rpm, and that's exactly what I needed.

    Today, I needed to reboot the machine and guess what... When I rebooted the server fans returned to 8000 RPM.

    Please, does anyone know what happened? I have no idea, google is not my friend this time.

    But the good news is that restarting the idrac nailed!

    When the server is restarted the iDRAC/BMC loses communication with the BIOS OF THE system until it has completed POST. During this time, it will run all the fans the most. Looks like the iDRAC/BMC is not restore this connection in the system BIOS correctly until it is restarted.

    If there is no USB device connected to the server, then unplug it and test again. If the problem still persists, then remove all the maps add-on and test again. If the problem persists then the iDRAC express and possibly on the system board must be replaced. The most likely cause of the problem in my view is cache on iDRAC express. If you have the same model available server to swap parts then you can exchange the iDRAC express to test.

    Thank you

  • Update the BIOS R610 of linux

    Hi again fellows!

    After Googling a lot, and now me again. I need to update my BIOS and linux debian Server R610, of course, without having to restart the systems.

    All the information I found on linux is confuse, some guys use lmbios to run the images, others use the iDRAC7 Interface but I hafe iDRAC6 and I can't access the web interface, I can only access OMSA 7 Web GUI.

    How you guys update the BIOS from linux? I already downloaded the image.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello xgonzalo

    You can update the BIOS to OpenManage Essentials: http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/systems-management/w/wiki/1989.openmanage-essentials.aspx

    The easiest day is simply to use a DUP and updated through the iDRAC. Why you can't access the web interface of the iDRAC?

    The BIOS will not update until the system restarts, then why is it so important that you perform the update without reboot? If you can not web server iDRAC function then it would probably best to boot from a Linux live CD that you run the RHEL or CentOS sync .bin file. Other methods to perform updates will be community supported on Debian.

  • Update Firmware of BMC R610 of linux

    Hi mates,

    I need to update a few R610 servers, I would like to only update the BMC Firmware if possible without shutting down the machines, is - it possible? I'm running debian on these machines.

    I open it because I've been Googling much this and I found that maybe there are several ways to update the firmwares of server, including the iDRAC completely update, etc., but I am only interested to get the latest patches of cooling, so I guess that should be only update BMC.

    Could you please some direct me in the right direction? I looked and I found some binary files in dell FTP, but I need to be sure of where to find the correct firmwares for my machines and what is the most common method through linux so far.

    Thank you comrades, I appreciate the help.


    There is no separate BMC firmware in R610. You need to update firmware iDRAC who BMC features as well. Down, you can load the latest firmware iDRAC at the bottom of the location


    You can update the firmware iDRAC without stopping or restarting the system. As you have debian on these machines, I recommend you update iDRAC using Web GUI. You can check below link with a video on the updating of the process. First half of the video is on the download of the image that has changed a bit. You can download the File Format 'Application' link above.


  • iDRAC communication problems 6

    Recently, I tried an upgrade of an old R610 iDRAC6 firmware. Well, everything went wrong. It was done to the place where he was just download the new BIN file before I said to update. It is just hung to 65% for hours until I have to give up. I tried a racadm racreset but he showed:

    ERROR: An update is currently underway. Impossible to reset the RAC at this time.

    SO I deciede to stop the server, unplug it and then empty the 'flea' in operating power in the power button for 10 seconds. I then plugged it back in and waited a little before turning it back on.

    Then, it's really fun when I saw this on the POST:

    The remote access controller initialization...

    The attention! iDRAC6 not responding do not. Reset.

    Then it restarts and then it showed:

    Change! Continuous start system accepts the risk that the system can turn off without warning.

    Strike F1 key to continue, F2 to run the system setup program

    I can possibly get into the OS and I try a racadm racreset, and it gives me the same warning as before update and this:


    FCAC is unable to communicate with the BMC. This condition can occur because of (1) any BMC is present, software components related to IPMI (2) missing or dysfunctional. Features CARS depend on BMC connectivity in order to work properly, and you can see failures as a result.

    I tried all the suggested 'fixed' this page, but it is still dead apparently: http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/systems-management/w/wiki/3464.troubleshooting-idrac6-issues

    Is there anyway to force a re-flash of the iDRAC or since I can't still connect with him it's a little dead and now I have close F1 to start my server in the future?


    the process has been altered and iDRAC will not be able to reflash, in this case, it will be necessary to replace the motherboard
