How To Purchase idrac 7 Enterprise License

I'm trying to find out how to purchase an iDrac 7 Enterprise License as well as at least the price of it.

I tried to call dell they said that they will send me a quote for it but that was a week ago and never heard anything back.

Then I had found a post saying to go to http://www.dell.com/support/licensing to purchase it but it shows nothing, and it looks like its to manage the licenses after I have purchased it

Currently the server did not come with Idrac on it and I have installed the 60-day evaluation license

And the only thing that I am finding on the dell store is

the Idrac 7 Express

<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>


and separately the port card


Unless that means I have to purchase the port card, then idrac7 express, then somehow upgrade to enterprise?


Edit - Oh this is for 3 servers, a R420, aR520, and a T320

RE: How To Purchase idrac 7 Enterprise License


THe part number for the Enterprise license is 421-6087. If you give that to your sales rep they should be able to get it ordered. 

In regards to the hardware. the port card you are referring to is for the dedicated port. The other hardware you can order is the SD card slots. Neither of which are required to use the Enterprise License. 

Then go to  https://www.dell.com/support/licensing/us/en/04 and enter customer information used at purchase and you can download. 

This whitepaper, page 11, describes the download process - https://www.google.com/url?q=http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-compon...

Let me know how it goes.

RE: How To Purchase idrac 7 Enterprise License

I know this thread is a few years old, but I just bought a few off lease servers from DellRefurbished.com not realizing they did not have enterprise iDrac Licenses.

To get an Eval license loaded, I downloaded " iDRAC7_LocalLicense_Installation_Tool_A00_1.0.iso"

Booted to CD, selected the top option...after a while it asked if I wanted an Eval (Y) and did I want to enable the dedicated NIC (Y)
