Dell OME Authtentication

This question has suggested answer(s)


I have Dell OME V2.1.0 to check the status of all of our iDrac's.

If I access the web interface from my desktop I am able to log in using my domain credentials, but if I try to log into the web interface from where OME is installed I can't get passed the authentication using the same domain credentials.

I've added into trusted sites, but I must be missing something.  

Is there anything I'm missing?

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    Hope you are talking about OME UI launch and it is asking for credentials whenever you launch from the system where OME is installed.

    It is the settings on internet explorer on the system where OME is installed.

    In Internet Explorer->Settings->Internet Options->Security tab, select the zone you are in with OME (either trusted site or intranet zone) -> click on custom level and go to the user authentication settings.

    Change it to Automatic logon with current username and password.

    I have kept OME in my intranet zone, and following are my settings.

    Let us know if it helps.

  • Hello,

    sorry for a late reply, i've tried this and it doesn't work.

    It works from my laptop, using my admin credentials but no matter which credential I use on the server it doesn't work, is it possible that a port needs opening? although on the credential popup I entered an incorrect password and I can confirm that active directory noticed I had entered an incorrect password, so it's talking to AD correctly.


  • and another question, I added my standard account (non admin) to the OME and I'm unable to access the UI from my desktop where my admin account works.

    I've added my standard account to the OMEAdministrator group on the server aswell as built in admin group and still it just keeps asking for password.
