Reset the remote console (DRAC/ILO/RSA)

Useful link: Find iLo, Drac, IMM/RSA, CIMC IP and MacAddress on esxi (vCenter)

We all are aware that the remote console (DRAC/ILO/RSA) can be accessed by using putty  or cmd as an interface to connect to port 22 and 23. Here is the guideline for those who might not be aware of this feature. This comes to the rescue when the remote console is responding to PING but the web interface is the not working and we are not able to RDP to the server to troubleshoot the issue. We can perform everything that can be done through the web interface i.e. remote console reset, server power reset, remote console configuration etc.

Here are the sample commands to reset/restart the remote console -

HP servers

cmd>Telnet 0.0.0.0 23/22
Login with the remote console userID/Password.

</>hpiLO-> cd /map1
status=0
status_tag=COMMAND COMPLETED

</map1>hpiLO-> reset
status=0
status_tag=COMMAND COMPLETED
Resetting iLO.

CLI session stopped.

Dell Servers

cmd> Telnet xx.xx.xx.xx 23/22
Login with the remote console userID/Password.

>Racadm racreset

IBM Servers
cmd> Telnet xx.xx.xx.xx 23/22
Login with the remote console userID/Password.

>resetsp

Note: Port 23 and 22 should be opened in order to use these commands. This can be verified from remote console web interface properties under remote console or network settings.
