How to configure DRAC5 to use java plug-in is (sorta) documented in the DRAC5 user's guide.  But there's a typo there.

Here's the details.

    Configure DRAC to use java for console viewer plugin type and for virtual media plugin type.
           racadm getconfig -f /tmp/racadm.out
           <edit /tmp/racadm.out>

            # 0 means ActiveX plugin, 1 means java plugin.
           cfgRacTunePluginType=1
           cfgVirMediaPluginType=1

             racadm config -f /tmp/racadm.out   

NOTE1:
   racadm config -g cfgRacTuning -o cfgRacTunePluginType 1
and
    racadm config -g cfgRacVirtual -o cfgVirMediaPluginType 1

should work also, but don't appear to.

NOTE2:  These specific variables seem to vary between DRAC version.  Like different between DRAC5 and DRAC6.

NOTE3:  Setting the plug-in type via CLI is especially important if you're using Firefox on Linux to access your DRAC5.  (not officially supported).
