Dell DRAC Virtual Console

Posted on 2012-08-30

I am using a Dell Remote Access Controller 6, and I am able to get into the DRAC and Launch the Virtual Console, but upon launching the console, the popup screen appears and installs the ActiveX (activeXViewer.esp), but after the install I just get a red X on the screen.  I have added the IP to the Trusted Sites and checked all "Allow" boxes, especially "Allow software to run or install even if the signature is invalid" and unchecked all "Check" boxes, especially "Check for signatures on downloaded programs", restarted IE, and I still get the same message.  There isn't a firewall between my workstation and the server, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what would cause this!

    Are you using a windows 7 PC. if yes try right clicking IE and "run as administrator". I experienced this myself but it worked fine after i run IE with highest privileges

    Assisted Solution

    I have fought the dell and cisco remote access controllers in IE repeatedly.  I typically use Firefox with the remote access cards and everything works great.

    Using the Java Plugin option in FireFox fixed the issue!  Thanks!
