Sometimes, the DELL iDRAC doesn't respond properly.  If this is the case, ssh to the iDRAC and reset it with the following command:

/admin1-> racadm racreset soft
RAC reset operation initiated successfully. It may take up to a minute
for the RAC to come back online again.
/admin1-> Connection to closed by remote host.
Connection to closed.
