Dell iDRAC racadm issue

Happen to came across this problem. It does not happen to my other units of Dell Servers doing the same deployment procedure.

Take note that you need to purchase Dell DRAC Enterprise in order to execute ‘racadm’

[root@server ~]# racadm getled
 
NOTE:
This Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller does not support RACADM commands.
Please contact Dell Customer Service to upgrade your version of iDRAC.

Strangely, this should not happen to me as I have purchased Dell DRAC Enterprise. This did not happen to my previous unit of Dell Servers.

After much troubleshooting and pulling of my hair, I managed to locate the problem to this 2 specific package not installed by OMSA

yum install srvadmin-idrac7 srvadmin-idracadm7

After which, let’s try to execute the command again

[root@server ~]# racadm getled
LED State :    Not-Blinking

Looks good 🙂 Hope it helps!
