Multiple Dell DRAC access

Hi all,

Can someone explain how I would configure firewall and DRAC if I wanted to access MULTIPLE DRAC's ?

That is, opening ports and mapping will only allow one DRAC ?

I'm missing something.

Configure all your DRACs in a seperate VLAN. Open communication to the VLAN and DRAc port in ur firewall

You can set the configuration as follows. For eg:, if you use the network 10.0.0.x network for your DRACs, then the firewall config would look like

Source: your network/IP
Destination: 10.0.0.x network
Port: The drac ports
Action:allow

This single rule should allow the required access

As for the ports, DRAC 5 uses the below ports(. I am not sure if u r using DRAC5, if it is a different version, the port details shld be availabe from the DRAC user guide)
