idrac 6/7 console browser/java compatibility chart?

This question is not answered

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.

  • Hi,

    The supported browsers are in the release notes for the firmware



    • 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


    IDRAC 6


    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.
