Drivers for Drac 4e/Di embedded daughter board

Hello
I have purchased a second hand Dell poweredge 2800, I have found most drivers fro server 2003 but I cannot work out how to find drivers for:
Dell Remote Access Card 4 daughter card
Dell Remote Access Card 4 daughter card virtual UART Card
Dell RAC PCI Function 2
I am hoping someone has had experience with these servers
I am also trying to find out how to monitor raid from windows, is this possible
kind regards
Ray

I think it is an openmanage tool or something like that. Can't remember the exact name. It is probably found under the utilities section of the server downloads.

The DRAC is for accessing the server without needing access to the OS running on the Server. You first setup an IP for that card using the firmware (BIOS), or possibly also via the OpenManage CD/DVD. Once the IP and a user account has been setup you can access it via a webbrowser from any PC on the network. You shouldn't need drivers for this. There may be firmware updates for this though.

The tools for monitoring and managing the server should be included in the OpenManage tools under utilities of that server's downloads.

Hello Rindi
the problem I am having concerns unknown devices in Device Manager and when I use Aida x64 to check hardware it recognises them as the following:
Dell Remote Access Card 4 daughter card
Dell Remote Access Card 4 daughter card virtual UART Card
Dell RAC PCI Function 2
I have tried a lot of drivers from the Dell site but none have updated the unknown devices. Hopefully you can point me to the correct open manage download I should use for PE2800 with Drac 4e/d1 in Server 2003
kind regards

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Just leave them as unknown devices. As the dRAC is used to manage the server without it's OS even coming into play I can't see any issue if drivers for it should be missing in the OS.

Hello Rindi
Thank you for the information I will leave them as unknown, on the same type of information do you know what programs manages the raid condition inside Windows Server 2003.
thanks Ray

Rindi was helpful and I received the information I needed though not necessarily what I wanted to hear.
