How to setup remote access on a Poweredge 2950
Posted on 2013-12-23
I have a second hand Poweredge 2950 Gen 2 with a remote access card installed. It looks very handy (especially since the server is quite noisy) but I am uncertain as to its setup.
1. Can I setup my OS through Drac?
2. I can connect the card with my hub, but that hub is now controlled by my current servers' DHCP. I suppose the best idea is to give it a fixed IP-address, but should that be one of the reserved addresses or an address that is outside my 192.168 range, for instance from the 10. etc range. Or have I misunderstood the whole thing?
