IssueHow to configure DRAC on Dell 2950
Resolution

DRAC is the Dell Remote Access Card. The following details provide guidance on enabling the Appliance DRAC, network configuration , root password, and basic User
This guidance is provided WITHOUT support from RSA. Support of DRAC is under consideration for future release but has been known to work.


Run the following commands from
/usr/sbin


Set DRAC network configuration


 


./racadm setniccfg ?s <IP_address> <subnet_mask> <gateway>


 


Example


./racadm setniccfg ?s 10.100.88.48  255.255.255.0  10.100.88.1


 


Change DRAC root password


./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminPassword ?i 2 <new_password>


 


Example
./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminPassword ?i  2   123abc


 


Add DRAC user


 


./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminUserName -i <index> <username>


 


./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i <index> <password>


 


./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminEnable 1 ?i <index>


 


./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminPrivilege <privilege_bit_mask>


 


 


Example, where <index> is a number from 1-16.  Index 2 is used by the root user.


./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminUserName -i 3 johnadmin


 


./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminPassword -i 3 123456


 


./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminEnable 1 ?i 3


 


./racadm config ?g cfgUserAdmin ?o cfgUserAdminPrivilege 0x000001FF ?I 3  


Locating the proper user index

To find out if a user exists, enter the following command at the command prompt, once for each index of 1?16.


 ./racadm getconfig -g cfgUserAdmin -i <index>


 


The two objects of interest are:


 # cfgUserAdminIndex=XX


cfgUserAdminUserName=


 


If the cfgUserAdminUserName object has no value, that index number, which is indicated by the cfgUserAdminIndex object, is available for use. If a name appears after the "=", that index is taken by that user name


 

Deleting DRAC user


 


./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminUserName -i <index> ""


 


Example
./racadm config -g cfgUserAdmin -o cfgUserAdminUserName -i 3 ""

Notes

The user privilege bit mask is made is up the privileges which are assigned to the user, as detailed in the table below:


 



  

User Privilege


  

  

Privilege Bit Mask


  

  

Log In To DRAC 5


  

  

0x0000001


  

  

Configure DRAC 5


  

  

0x0000002


  

  

Configure Users

Clear Logs


  

  

0x0000008


  

  

Execute Server Control Commands


  

  

0x0000010


  

  

Access Console Redirection


  

  

0x0000020


  

  

Access Virtual Media


  

  

0x0000040


  

  

Test Alerts


  

  

0x0000080


  

  

Execute Debug Commands


  

  

0x0000100


  

 

Privilege bit masks should be added to allow multiple user privileges.


The writing of this knowledge database article does not imply support for configuring or use of the DRAC in conjunction with the RSA SecurID Appliance 3.0.  Dell has information on the DRAC at:  http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/software/smdrac3/
DRAC uses TCP port 5900 so open that in any Firewall between the Appliance and your PC
