Getting a DRAC6 to work on Windows 10 including console R710

Hi all,

After spending an hour getting an old R710 DRAC6 to work with Windows 10, I thought I'd write a guide in case anyone else is stuck.

  1. Start Internet Explorer
  2. Add your DRAC to the Compatibility View - this solves the 'undefined' menu display problem and should allow access to everything other than the Console.
  3. Remove any newer versions of Java by uninstalling.
  4. Download and install Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0_80, also known as jre-7u80 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase7-521261.html. This link was right at time of posting, otherwise try googling "Java SE 7 Archive Downloads". You're looking for "jre-7u80-windows-x64.exe" (for 64-bit windows obviously).
  5. From Configure Java, an application installed as part of the above, go to the security tab and add your DRAC to the Exception List.
  6. Log onto your DRAC and navigate to System->Console/Media->Configuration. Ensure your console is enabled and the Plug-in Type is Java. Some people also recommend disabling video encryption.

Hope this helps someone. This is an unmonitored account/email.
