I am trying to identify Dell servers that currently have DRAC cards installed, regardless of the configuration. Using the PCI & Disk HW Inventory Report and the product filer *RAC* is resulting in a short list of servers containing the PowerEdge 3/Di RAC Virtual UART Port.
I have not been successful using different filter types, "DRAC" for instance. Is there a way to expand this search which may include additional versions of the card? Any assistance is appreciated.
It seems you can't run reports on the system slots. I've tried many combination like you have, but can't see to get the results.
The system slot designator should be RAC_CONN
Perhaps you could leverage the racadm command? I'm not sure if this utility is present on all servers with a DRAC card or not. I tested it on one of my servers, using racadm getsysinfo and it outputs some info you could use a log parser on potentially. It may be that racadm isn't even present on systems without a DRAC, in which case testing for the existence of racadm might be enough....
Just curious if anybody every figured this out...
We've used LAN watch to figure this out. Run it with SNMP enabled and the DRAC card will be indicated in the list.
I posted a procedure I wrote to do this. Hope it helps someone.
