This card is integrated into a Symantec Messaging Gateway appliance as a daughtercard that connects to the system motherboard.
DRAC cards can be used to do any of the following tasks:
Access a server after a server failure.
Remotely view server internal event logs for diagnostic purposes.
Manage a server by redirecting the console output (graphics and text) to a remote console.
Perform an orderly shutdown of a server for maintenance task.
Diagnose a server failure and restart the servers.
Receive alerts through email or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) traps when the server detects an error.
Symantec recommends you to use a separate network subnet for DRAC management.
After you enable DRAC feature on the appliance, Symantec recommends you to change the default DRAC root password. For more information on changing DRAC password, see the Dell support Web site.
