Configuring iDRAC Remotely

I recently had to configure over 100 iDRACs remotely and the last thing I wanted to do was to manually go into all of them via the web interface and configure different options!

I wanted to enable alerting via email for only Warning and Critical alerts on a variety of iDRAC version, 5, 6 and 7 hence why the below commands might look like they are duplicates but what I found is that if you start with the commands for the oldest version first and move to the newest you have all your bases covered:

racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSServer1 DNSIP
racadm config -g cfgLanNetworking -o cfgDNSDomainName DOMAIN
racadm config -g cfgIpmiLan -o cfgIpmiLanAlertEnable 1
racadm config -g cfgEmailAlert -i 1 -o cfgEmailAlertEnable 1
racadm config -g cfgEmailAlert -i 1 -o cfgEmailAlertIndex 1
racadm config -g cfgRemoteHosts -o cfgRhostsSmtpServerIpAddr SMTPIP
racadm config -g cfgRemoteHosts -o cfgRhostsSmtpServerIpAddr SMTPDNS
racadm config -g cfgEmailAlert -i 1 -o cfgEmailAlertAddress ITDEPARTMENTEMAIL
racadm eventfilters set -c idrac.alert.system.critical -a none -n email
racadm eventfilters set -c idrac.alert.system.warning -a none -n email
