Executive Summary

The Dell Remote Access Controller 5 (DRAC 5) is a systems management hardware and software solution designed to provide remote management capabilities, crashed system recovery, and power control functions for Dell systems.

By communicating with the system's baseboard management controller (BMC), the DRAC 5 (when installed) can be configured to send you e-mail alerts for warnings or errors related to voltages, temperatures, intrusion, and fan speeds. The DRAC 5 also logs event data and the most recent crash screen (for systems running the Microsoft Windows operating system only) to help you diagnose the probable cause of a system crash.

The DRAC 5 has its own microprocessor and memory, and is powered by the system in which it is installed. The DRAC 5 may be preinstalled on your system, or available separately in a kit.
