Dell PowerEdge iDRAC

Hi,
I bought  a "DELL PowerEdge R210 (Intel XEON X4340 2.4Ghz, 8Gb Ram)" server recently. I was not aware of an optional card within system iDRAC.

http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/poweredge-r210-spec-sheet-en.pdf says
"Lifecycle Controller is delivered as part
of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the
PowerEdge R210. The Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify
administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of
provisioning functions such as system deployment, system
updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a
single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator
(USC) in a pre-OS environment. This helps eliminate the
need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/
DVD media."
--Do I need any licensed software to use it?

Thanks

to confirm: your question is:
--Do I need any licensed software to use it?

No. if you choose to purchase the card, you get all the software required to use the features it provides.

you'll need a valid license for the OS, and any software for the system though, obviously.

You can download all you need once you buy and install the card from support.dell.com.

You might not need it.
