The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) is designed to make system administrators more productive and improve the
overall availability of Dell EMC systems. iDRAC alerts administrators to system issues, helps them perform remote system
management, and reduces the need for physical access to the system.
Options to set up iDRAC IP address
You must configure the initial network settings based on your network infrastructure to enable the communication to and from
iDRAC. You can set up the IP address by using one of the following interfaces:
See Dell Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller User's Guide at Dell.com/idracmanuals
See Dell Deployment Toolkit User's Guide at Dell.com/openmanagemanuals
See Dell Lifecycle Controller User's Guide at Dell.com/idracmanuals

You must use the default iDRAC IP address 192.168.0.120 to configure the initial network settings, including setting up DHCP or a
static IP for iDRAC.
NOTE: To access iDRAC, ensure that you install the iDRAC port card or connect the network cable to the Ethernet
connector 1 on the system board.
