• Restart the console from OS (srvadmin-racadm5 rpm) or from iDRAC: racadm racreset

The default option is soft. If you do not enter an option, racadm waits three seconds and then runs the soft option with the racreset subcommand.

hard - A hard reset resets the entire RAC and is as close to a power-on reset as can be achieved using software. The RAC log, database, and selected daemons are shutdown gracefully prior to the reset. A hard reset should be considered as a final effort. PCI configuration is lost.
soft - A soft reset is a microprocessor and microprocessor subsystem reset that resets the processor core to restart the software. PCI configurations are preserved. The RAC log, database, and selected daemons are shutdown gracefully prior to the reset.
graceful - A graceful reset is the same as a soft reset.
<delay> - The user is allowed to select how many seconds of delay occur before the reset sequence is started. A valid delay entry is between 1-60 seconds. The default is 3 seconds.
