  • Since the “twenty” series is a Gen 12 server the iDRAC is on the MB and tied to the Lifecycle controller. If the ISO disk doesn’t get you back online line then it a new MB.

    Side note besides unplug any USB devices, pull ability cords and hold in ability button for 45 seconds (as dbeato said to do). Leave all usb unplugged. Tried two reboots and see if Lifecycle shows back as enabled

    • Yeah, unplug the power of the server and so drain power from any of the devices. So plug it in and ability it on. Then practise another system Inventory and check once again.

    • I had the same problem with an R320. It simply seems dead, can’t get it to appear in any diagnostics. I was able to society a replacement menu, we’ll see what happens when it gets hither.

      BTDT … On re-power, Idrac doesn’t initialize, no activity from the LED, goes through configuring retentiveness once again, fan ramps upwards to full blast. Have to F1 a few times to get it to finally boot.

      Got the Bluish I on front panel, scrolling brandish has nothing

      Says it’south disabled …

      The merely thing visible in Idrac settings in bios is version number, nothing else

      ^Start hither.  To be more specific, when you lot initially power up the machine, hit F10 to get into the lifecycle controller and see if you update the lifecycle firmware from there, and then retry the idrac update.  With Dell servers it is a skillful idea to always update the lifecycle controller firmware and BIOS earlier updating anything else.  These links may help:

      http://media.community.dell.com/en/dtc/attach/lcc%20&%20usc%20update%20-%20repair.doc  I know this is for a Gen11, but it my go you started in the right management.

      You may also requite this a try.

    • Well you have the iDRAC key information technology sounds like, you merely need a new controller which is like $thirty-50. If that doesn’t work, send the card back for a refund and then chalk it upwardly as a loss. I’ll expect for a link…

      Side annotation, I never update firmware unless I’m trying to overcome a big issue and it’s a last resort.

    • Going to try again with the full update ISO. Got aggravated with the total one and created a ‘quick” 1 for Idrac and bios using repository director, which didn’t install annihilation. Mayhap there’s something buried in the full one that will help … seems like zero to lose ATM.

    • Which update did yous use? Did information technology lose power or hang at any stage in update process? Try taking your system downwardly to minimum config and draining rest ability and boot upwardly once more.

    • The plot gets a little thicker …

      Flipped the jumper to clear NV, the bios now reports the Idrac settings as the “new” version 1.65.65.04 just information technology’s still not responding.

      That trigger annihilation for anyone? Looks like at least part of the update took, but it still fails when collecting inventory and lifecycle still reports disabled.

    • I was running the Idrac with Lifecycle controller update 2.41.xl.40 from Windows.

      It appeared to finish cleanly.

      No Joy on accessing the lifecycle controller – at boot it reports itself equally disabled. Idrac kickoff reported equally the original version, then when I flipped the Clear NV jumper information technology showed the updated version. Idrac settings in BIOS are non accessible, information technology shows me the version number and SWC0700 mistake – the upthread screenshots testify where I’g at with the original mobo.

      Farther attempts to update (from a Linux repository disk and from Windows) all fail with cannot go LCL inventory.

      I’grand all ears if you take something else to try – all solutions others accept posted upthread have failed.

    • I am having a similar (the same?) problem with a R820.  Same error as OP’s screenshot.   I got a full update Linux ISO from Dell RPM (took me all forenoon), and it appeared to not update annihilation.

      Machine boots ok (I tin F1/F2 past the iDRAC warnings), merely the fans stay on total nail and it sounds like a jet airplane.       BIOS says iDRAC version is 1.lx.lx,  I have a message from Dell Support that iDRAC 2.40.40 might fix the trouble.   But I can’t figure out how to get the iDRAC updated.

    • I’m guessing that you get the “lifecycle controller disabled” message as in ane of my screenshots above?

      Attempt the “flea ability drain” – shut it down, unplug the line cords from the power supplies, and hit the ability push button and concord for 30 seconds. Re-plug and wait a few minutes if not configured to auto outset. If that doesn’t work, probably looking at a new mobo.

      That’s iii bricked Idracs on x20 servers hither on SW this month.

    • Yes, did the ability drain thing, several times.  What sucks is that this R820 was barely used, we bought it 18+ months ago, and it pretty much sat in a rack turned off for months (long story).   Powered information technology on recently, and got these iDRAC errors.  The machine boots and runs ok (merely press F2 to continue by the iDRAC errors), but because iDRAC (or something?) isn’t communicating with the fan speed controller — the fans stay on full speed and it sounds like a jet engine on a tarmac…

       If the server is still under warranty, open up a case with Dell and they will replace the motherboard. Otherwise, read the thread and effort everything footstep by step. Most times you will end upward replacing the motherboard.

    • I have an R720 giving me the aforementioned error.  I hadn’t touched the unit, it just lost power during an extended outage and when power was restored the iDrac never came support.  Lifecycle controller likewise unavailable.  I take read that the version of firmware that I currently have installed can crusade issues.  It makes no sense to me that there is not a way to restore the firmware.

    • The same happened to my R320 afterward an URGENT FW Upgrade for my iDRAC and LCC. Seems bricked aswell at present (disabled LCC, iDRAC not responding). For me, the Bootable ISO will just say “dracut: FATAL: Failed to mount cake device of live image. dracut: Refusing to continue mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepage or helper program, or other mistake.

      I can’t use the vanquish or annihilation. Where are the logs?

      Was anyone luck plenty to recover the LCC without replacing the MoBo? Btw I tried every combination with power drains etc.

      Whatever luck with the Enterprise menu @davecohen3?
