Get Host Power On working with Dell iDrac in Citrix XenServer 6.5

After a couple days messing around in searching how to get my XenServer 6.5 Hosts powered on by iDRAC, here's my little howto:

  1. Download and install Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Managed Node for XenServer6.5 , v8.1.1:
    From XenServer host console:

    cd /tmp
    mount -o loop /tmp/OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-LX-8.1.1-1583.XenServer65_A00.iso /mnt
    cd /mnt
    cd ..
    umount /mnt
  2. From iDrac web interface, create a user named xenserver (or whatever), with a password not containing complex chars. The user must be created with Administrator privileges.
  3. In XenCenter go to Host->Properties->Power On, select Remote Access Controller (DRAC) , enter the ip address of the iDrac and credential of iDrac user created.
  4. Ta-Daaah! Host Power On is enabled!
