This chapter provides information about how to install and setup your DRAC 4 hardware and software.


Before You Begin

Gather the following items that came with your system prior to installing and configuring the DRAC 4 software.


Installing the DRAC 4 Hardware

NOTE: The DRAC 4 connection emulates a USB keyboard connection. As a result, when you restart the system, the system will not notify you if your keyboard is not attached.

The DRAC 4 may be preinstalled on your system, or available separately in a kit. To get started with the DRAC 4 that is already installed on your system, see "Software Installation and Configuration Overview."

If a DRAC 4 is not installed on your system, see the Installing a Remote Access Card document that came with your DRAC 4 kit or see your platform Installation and Troubleshooting Guide for hardware installation instructions before proceeding.

NOTE: Removing expansion cards, such as the DRAC 4, is documented in the Installation and Troubleshooting Guide that is included with your system.

Software Installation and Configuration Overview

This section provides a high-level overview of the DRAC 4 software installation and configuration process. Configure your DRAC 4 using the Web-based interface, racadm CLI, or Serial/Telnet console. Network configuration can also be performed using operating system utilities (Option ROM).

For more information about the DRAC 4 software components, see "Installing the Software on the Managed System."

NOTE: For basic information about using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, see "DRAC 4 Software Basics for Red Hat Enterprise Linux."

Installing Your DRAC 4 Software

To install your DRAC 4 software, perform the following steps in order:

  1. Update the system BIOS.

  2. Install the software on the managed system. See "Installing the Software on the Managed System."

  3. Install the software on the management station. See "Installing the Software on the Management Station."

Configuring Your DRAC 4 Software

To configure your DRAC 4 software, perform the following steps in order:

  1. Select one of the following configuration tools:

NOTICE: Using more than one configuration tool at the same time may generate unexpected results.
  1. Configure the DRAC 4 network settings. See "Configuring the DRAC 4 Network Settings."

  2. Add and configure DRAC 4 users. See "Adding and Configuring DRAC 4 Users."

  3. Configure the Web browser to connect to the Web-based interface. See "Configuring a Supported Web Browser."

  4. Install the Sun Java plug-in. See "Installing the Sun Java Plug-In."

NOTE: The Sun Java plug-in is only required if you are using the Console Redirection feature.
  1. Disable the Windows Automatic Reboot Option. See "Disabling the Windows Automatic Reboot Option."

  2. Update the DRAC 4 Firmware. See "Updating the DRAC 4 Firmware."

  3. Access the DRAC 4 through a network. See "Accessing the DRAC 4 Through a Network."

Registering the DRAC Host Name With DNS Using DHCP

In DRAC 4 version 1.40 and later, you can configure your DHCP server to dynamically register the DRAC DNS name in your DNS server database. By enabling encryption in both the DHCP and DNS servers, the DRAC DNS name can be registered in a secure environment.

To configure your DRAC to allow the DHCP server to update the DNS database, set the cfgNicUseDhcp object value to 1 (TRUE) and cfgDNSRegisterRac object value to 0 (FALSE). With this configuration, the DRAC will supply cfgDNSRacName to the DHCP server. See "cfgLanNetworking" for information about these object property settings.

NOTE: When you configure the DRAC, the DHCP server must also be configured to perform the DNS database update.

Installing the Software on the Managed System

Installing software on the managed system is optional. Without the managed system software, you lose the ability to use the racadm locally, and for the RAC to capture the last crash screen.

To install the managed system software, install the software on the managed system using the Dell Systems Console and Agent CD. For instructions about how to install this software, see your Quick Installation Guide or Server Administrator User's Guide.

Managed system software will install your choices from the following components on the managed system: the appropriate version of Server Administrator and the appropriate DRAC 4 agent or only the DRAC 4 agent.

NOTE: Do not install the DRAC 4 management station software and the DRAC 4 managed system software on the same system.

Depending on the operating system, the DRAC 4 agent consists of either Microsoft Windows services, Novell NLMs, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux agents. The DRAC 4 agent automatically starts when you boot the managed system. If you install only the DRAC 4 agent, you will not have the ability to view the system's last crash screen or use the Watchdog feature. For more information about the last crash screen, see "Viewing the Last System Crash Screen." For more information about the Watchdog feature, see "System Information."

Configuring the Managed System to Capture the Last Crash Screen

Before the DRAC 4 can capture the last crash screen, configure the managed system with the following prerequisites.

  1. Install the managed system software. For more information about installing the managed system software, see the Server Administrator User's Guide.

  2. Run a supported Microsoft Windows operating system with the Windows "automatically reboot" feature deselected in the Windows Startup and Recovery Settings.

  3. Enable the watchdog timer and set the watchdog recovery action to Reset, Power Off, or Power Cycle. To configure the watchdog timer, you must use Server Administrator or IT Assistant. For information about how to configure the watchdog timer, see the Server Administrator User's Guide or the IT Assistant User's Guide. To ensure that the last crash screen can be captured, the watchdog timer must be set to 30 seconds or greater. The default setting is 480 seconds or 8 minutes.

The last crash screen is not available when the Watchdog recovery action is set to Shutdown or Power Cycle if the managed system is powered off.

Disabling the Windows Automatic Reboot Option

To ensure that the DRAC 4 Web-based interface last crash screen feature works properly, disable the Automatic Reboot option on managed systems running the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server operating systems.
