Let’s say you need to reconfigure your ESXi host’s iDrac. Assuming you have OpenManage installed on the ESXi host, this is very simple…
- Log into OpenManage (be sure to check ignore certificates when logging in). The username and password will be the same as your ESXi root credentials.
- Expand System > Main System Chassis > Remote Access
- You’ll see an Option to Reset to Default- if you’ve forgotten the password, you can use this.
- If you just need to reset the IP, go to the Configuration tab and change the IP Settings accordingly.
This is available on iDrac 8, and perhaps iDrac 7 as well.
