Applies to

iDRAC Express and iDRAC Enterprise

  • Applies to several SolidFire models:   ex. SFX010 series

Answer

  • The iDRAC Express version is the free bundled version that comes with the product
  • The Express version allows most iDRAC Enterprise features except a Dedicated NIC and an easy to use KVM java console
  • The Express version also uses a shared NIC setup by leveraging one of the on-board 1GbE ports
  • The advantages of the Enterprise version is that it allows you to setup iDRAC over the Dedicated iDRAC/NIC and allows easy to use KVM java console access
