Is there a document somewhere that shows which browsers and java versions are compatible with the remote consoles in which idrac 6 and 7 versions?
I have yet to find a version of IE9, 32 and 64 bit, or Firefox, 28 and later on Windows or Linux, that works, but I have need to upgrade my idracs and I want to know if the idrac upgrade will solve this problem.
The supported browsers are in the release notes for the firmware http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER02076730M/1/iDRAC7_1%2056%2055_A_ReleaseNotes.pdf
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 8
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 9
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 10
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
• Safari version 5.2
• Safari version 6.0
• Mozilla Firefox version 22
• Mozilla Firefox version 23
• Google Chrome version 27
• Google Chrome version 28
The latest versions of the firmware may help with the supporting later versions of Java. What is the issue you are having with them?
I know this is an old post, but it's one of the few google results that is relevant. I've found a solution. Take the viewer.jnlp file that downloads when you click launch from the iDRAC web interface and edit it with a text editor or open it with a web browser. There should be a line that says <j2se version="1.x"> where x is the version of Java required. It worked for me on an iDRAC 6 enterprise and required Java 1.6. Also note that in the file it said <j2se version="1.6+"> but 1.7 and newer did not work for me.
