DRAC5 activeX issue

You can access the Drac card using IE7, but when you goto the virtual media, you get an activex warning and then it kicks you back to the login screen.

Here are the steps needed to fix IE7:

1. From the “Tools” menu, select “Internet Options

2. Go to the “Security” tab and highlight “Intenet” and select “Custom Level”

3. Scroll to “ActiveX control and plug-ins”, and set the sub-setting “Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls” to “Enable”

4. Click “OK” a couple of times to save settings and then try to access the DRAC5 KVM plugin again – it should properly install now.

  1. Thanks for posting this article. I’m unquestionably frustrated with struggling to search out pertinent and rational comment on this subject. Everybody nowadays goes to the very far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many thanks for your concise, applicable insight.

      Don’t worry, everyone else in the planet is wrong, you just found someone who isn’t 🙂
      Glad I could help!

    You are the man! Why I found this here and not on Dell’s site is a whole other issue 😉
    Thank you!
