Windows Server 2008 R2 - DRAC Console Redirection

When using the remote console feature through DRAC 6 Enterprise, I'm able to connect and use the mouse but it doesn't recognize any keyboard strokes.  Made sure DRAC firmware was the latest.  Anybody else have this issue?

Had a chance to do some more troubleshooting and think I have it down to the ActiveX control it uses doesn't like IE8 in Windows 7.

Re: Windows Server 2008 R2 - DRAC Console Redirection

Hi, yes i am also facing the same problem.

It can't even work on a fresh Windows 7 installation. And even just updated to the latest firmware 1.54 (Build 15).

I know the Java works, and the activeX works on XP w IE8.

It was working when the drac was first installed serveral months ago, but only gave this problem in the last 1 month.

Is Dell working on a fix??
