iDRAC config reset/configure

by on Jul.29, 2019, under Posts

For those of you who have to work remotely with Dell servers that have active iDRAC interfaces that are either not configured or their configuration isn’t documented, I’ve discovered a useful tool that is written for Linux but works on ESXI as well:

ipmitool – sha1sum 3244c3cee98ef3168193d1a26dca7dfcc732e459

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxZG1yRxL_q4TWtURHp1bU84eGFCazlHaWJjcDlfTWN5NUZr

ipmitool-1.8.15-1.vib – sha1sum 3cecaeec586fe06b5ace383a6acf4703fb143a08

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxZG1yRxL_q4UE95dTdGaHY0R3RhempnNmFzOUhBX3NVT2dn

With ssh enabled on your ESXI host, you can sftp one of these files to the host and use them to setup iDRAC or reset the admin/root user password.

zitstif.no-ip.org is back up!

by on Jun.06, 2010, under Code, Posts

After having some down time, which started on May 29th, I scrambled around to find a quick solution to the problem.

The problem came to light after noticing a few nights prior to May 29th, that my web server was not responding correctly and I could not log into it what so ever.

So, ergo I had to actually get on my server (physically) and noticed a bunch of read errors, and the first thought that came to mind was “Bad hard drive!”.

With that in mind, I backed up my server contents as needed and booted my server off of a usb drive which contained a live Linux distro and used:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 80

to host a simple page displaying what had happened.

At a later time I then realized that I had a spare 10 GB hard drive in my basement and that is what the server is currently running on. Hopefully it lasts for quite some time…

My goal with my server is to: top out the specs for it (max out the memory, and hard drive capacity) and have some virtual hosts on it.

For those of you who are fans (I sincerely doubt there are any, but I can hope!), zitstif.no-ip.org is back up!
