A month ago, I noted some improvements in IPv6 management networks. I have some more positive news for ET’s management network.

Our group is moving to a new office location this fall. We’ll be out of the Computer Building, across campus from the machine room. So we wanted a small server to keep in the new office, so we ordered a Dell PowerEdge T610, a small tower. It turns out Dell’s iDRAC6 remote management card supports IPv6:

If I’d been more up-to-date on DISA’s IPv6 compliance list, I wouldn’t have been surprised by this.

Sadly, the IPv6 stack is disabled by default. But at least it’s there.
