Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) Version 1.50.50 User's Guide


The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) is designed to make server administrators more productive and improve the overall availability of Dell servers. iDRAC7 alerts administrators to server issues, helps them perform remote server management, and reduces the need for physical access to the server.

iDRAC7 with Lifecycle controller technology is part of a larger datacenter solution that helps keep business critical applications and workloads available at all times. The technology allows administrators to deploy, monitor, manage, configure, update, troubleshoot and remediate Dell servers from any location, and without the use of agents. It accomplishes this regardless of operating system or hypervisor presence or state.

Several products work in conjunction with the iDRAC7 and Lifecycle controller to simplify and streamline IT operations, such as:
  • Dell Management plug-in for VMware vCenter
  • Dell Repository Manager
  • Dell Management Packs for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)
  • BMC Bladelogic
  • Dell OpenManage Essentials
  • Dell OpenManage Power Center
The iDRAC7 is available in the following variants:
  • Basic Management with IPMI (available by default for 200-500 series servers)
  • iDRAC7 Express (available by default on all 600 and higher series of rack or tower servers, and all blade servers)
  • iDRAC7 Enterprise (available on all server models)
