Internet Explorer 11 and DRAC

  • drac6 and drac7 don't seem to be working in Internet Explorer 11. Any work arounds to use activex?

  • Hi Cameron,

    The iDRAC 6 and 7 does not support Internet Explorer 11 at this point in time.

    Thanks and Regards


  • I am sorry to hear that.

    Do you have an ETA on either making DRAC work in IE 11 or making DRAC not require IE based ActiveX only functions (Virtual Media)?

  • Looks like adding DRAC IP to Compatibility Mode list in IE 11 works BUT need to add one IP at a time and it does not accept CIDR.

    Was this browser made in the 90's? :(

  • I have just found myself in the same situation.

    Thanks for the tip on Compatibility mode!

    Still painful......

  • Hi Cameron,

    The support will be in future release of iDRAC. Also you can change the settings of the virtual console plug in type to "Java" for virtual console and virtual media operations.

    Thanks and Regards


  • Thanks Pradeep.

    Do you mean support for IE 11 will be added in a future firmware release or in iDRAC8?

  • IE11 support will be added in future release of iDRAC7.



  • Thank you! :)

  • Any update on this?  Maybe when IE 13 is out you'll have support for 11?

  • Hello Pradeep.

    I want to understand properly.

    1. Is this something that only affects 11G?  I have not had this issue on 12G, but want to be sure.
    2. Is there expected to be an update to fix the issue in 11G?

  • Hi Mikey,

    The support in 11G is for compatbility mode only.


    Thanks and Regards

  • Thanks for the tip! I was having this problem for weeks.

  • For IDRAC6 you can use the following registry key.  This works especially if you "clean' your compatibility site list.

    Replace the server ip with the IP address.  Leave the quotation marks.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList]
