This article explains how to configure the IP address of the iDRAC (Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller) via the LCD Panel.
In order to complete this procedure, the server must be equipped with an LCD panel. If the server does not have an LCD panel, please consult this article
for alternate methods to configure the iDRAC IP address.
Please follow the instructions below to configure the IP address of the iDRAC through the LCD panel:
- On the server's LCD Panel, use directional buttons for navigation and the center button, ✔, to select the option or to enter a value.

c) Select "No" for Setup DNS.
d) Select "Yes" to save the settings.
- After setting a valid IP address on your network, use your browser (e.g. Chrome, IE, Firefox) to access iDRAC via the IP address.
If performing a peer-to-peer with a laptop, set an IP address in the same range on the LAN port of the laptop with the same subnet
and then use the iDRAC IP address to access it in the browser.
