How to clear Dell PowerEdge server stuck iDRAC job queue

I was trying to create a partition in the vFlash memory of the iDRAC controller for this Dell PowerEdge server that I was building.  I needed to create it using the Server 2012r2 ISO image file.  Well, the Dell tech had me run a firmware update.  Turns out when I tried to update, the update got stuck.  This article will show who to clear a stuck iDRAC job queue.

I ran the update incorrectly and the job got stuck in the job queue.  The Dell tech had me run the following command to clear out the job queue so I could update the firmware correctly.

racadm -r <ip address> -u <username> -p <password> jobqueue delete -i JID_CLEARALL_FORCE

Once the job queue was cleared, I was able to run the firmware update correctly.
