Subject: iDRAC6 Express on PE R610?


We have some poweredge r610 nodes with the iDRAC6 Express card.  We want

to use them with the first NIC shared between OS and the DRAC.  However,

the DRAC falls off the network (stops responding to pings) shortly after

starting up.  We have just tried with an iDRAC6 Enterprise using the 
dedicated port and this is stable.  Anyone using the shared port 
configuration with iDRAC6 Express?  Any "tricks" to making this work?
