Dell DRAC II Cards/AMI MegaRAC 780 Cards

By ejcooper ·
I am in the process of implementing enterprise wide many DRAC II cards in our DELL PowerEdge Servers. Are there any whitepapers or "Best Practises" Documents available for these cards? In addition, how has your experience been with these cards?

Dell DRAC II Cards/AMI MegaRAC 780 Cards

by stephen_sykes In reply to Dell DRAC II Cards/AMI Me ...

I have succesfully installed the DRAC II cards into Dell Poweredge 2450 and 4200 servers. The 2450's were relatively straight forward (slot 2 is dedicated for the DRAC card) however the 4200's were a bit tricky as they dont have the dedicated slot. By installing earlier versions of the DELL HIP software the card will work. Unfortunately this was almost a year ago and I am now on a Compaq site. There is some info on the Dell site:
for example.
Any specific problems with the install I may be able to help you with let me know.
