I have a Dell PowerEdge R610 server that is getting an error when it restarts. It says the iDrac is over voltage press F1 to continue or F2 to go into setup. I messed with the power settings on the server and it hasn't made a difference.

Im unable to connect to the iDRAC via ping or web gui.

Should I try reseating the iDRAC component?

Reseat the component and verify any cables plugged in.

Make sure you reset the power settings back to default (could do that with the BIOS too).

if reseating/resetting doesn't work you need to call dell under warranty as this could have implications or be a fault that needs fixing before your server goes pop.
