to get IE to work

1. download and install java  java 7 update 51  ( 7.0.510)

open the DRAC ....console.....options...set plug in type to "NATIVE"

native doesn't use java, and I experience issue with "Native" which keyboard function will not work.

and Dell Tech also suggested to use Java instead of Native.
