iDRAC connection

The iDRAC connection requires a network connection between the integrated Dell Remote Access Control (iDRAC) management port on the DR Series system and another computer running the iDRAC remote console session in a supported browser. The iDRAC provides remote console redirection, power control, and the out-of-band (OOB) system management functions for the DR Series system. iDRAC connections are configured using console redirection and the iDRAC6/7 web interface. The login values you can use for making iDRAC connections are:

For information about configuring the iDRAC, see the Dell RACADM Reference Guides at support.dell.com/manuals and the topic, Accessing iDRAC6/iDRAC7 Using RACADM.

When the DR Series System splash screen is displayed, you are ready to begin initialization using the DR Series system CLI logon process. For more information, see Logging in and Initializing the DR Series System.

Accessing iDRAC6/iDRAC7 by using RACADM

You can use SSH-based or Telnet-based interfaces to access iDRAC6/iDRAC7 by using the RACADM utility. RACADM (remote access controller administration) is a command-line utility that allows you to set up and configure the integrated Dell Remote Access Control (iDRAC) interface card to provide an out-of-band management capability.

The iDRAC card contains a controller with its own processor, memory, network connection, and access to the system bus. This gives system or network administrators the capability to configure a system as if they were sitting at the local console using the power management, virtual medial access and remote console capabilities, by using a supported web browser or command line interface.

The logon values you can use for making iDRAC connections are:

For more information, see the RACADM Reference Guides for iDRAC, the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 6 (iDRAC6) User Guide, or the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) User Guide that are available at support.dell.com/manuals.

Logging on and initializing the DR Series system

Before you can start to use the DR Series system graphical user interface (GUI) for the first time, you must initialize the system.

The Initial System Configuration Wizard lets you configure the following network settings to complete the first-time initialization of your system:

When you initialize the system you will log on to the DR Series system CLI by using a local console KVM (keyboard-video monitor) connection or an iDRAC connection. (For more information, see the topic, Local Console Connection, or iDRAC Connection.) You will then configure your system network settings by using the Initial System Configuration Wizard as described in the steps below.

To log on and initialize the DR Series system, complete the following steps:

2.
At the login as: prompt, type administrator, and press <Enter>.
3.
At the administrator@<system_name> password: prompt, type the default administrator password (St0r@ge!), and press <Enter>.
The Initial System Configuration Wizard window is displayed.

The figure shows the initial system configuration wizard window.

4.
To configure the network settings, type y (for yes), and press <Enter>.
To do this, at the DHCP prompt, type no (this selects static IP addressing), and press <Enter>.
NOTE: When you select static IP addressing, you are prompted to type the static IP address (for example, you could use the default IP, 10.77.88.99) for the system, and press <Enter>. If your network supports the use of DHCP, type yes at the DHCP prompt, press <Enter>, and respond to any prompts.
If you responded yes, type an IP address you want to use for the secondary DNS server (for example, 10.10.10.11), and press <Enter>.
If you responded yes, type the host name you want to use, and press <Enter>. After you configure your host name response, the current system settings are displayed.
12.
To accept these settings, type y (for yes), and press <Enter>.
13.
If you want to change any of these settings, type n (for no), and press <Enter>. Modify the settings as needed, and press <Enter>.
14.
At the prompt, type exit and press <Enter> to end the DR Series system CLI session.

You are now ready to log in to the system using the DR Series system GUI.
