    No. MP-RAS is highly specific to NCR hardware.

    But we have MP-RAS on DELL 1600 Boxes in our organization...would they have used any NCR hardware inside the DELL boxes?....

    Accepted Solution

    Maybe things have changed, but a few years ago when I last worked with MP-RAS, they shipped drivers only for the hardware they were putting on their systems.

    Or maybe NCR has given up making its own systems and is OEMing Dell boxes like most everyone else these days.

    Though, one question...

    Why in the world would anyone intentionally put MP-RAS on a non-NCR box? It's old and creakey enough as it is without running it in an unsupported/unlicensed configuration.
