iDRAC 6 dockerized

Web interface Web interface

Guacamole Directly connected to VNC via Guacamole

About

Allows access to the iDRAC 6 console without installing Java or messing with Java Web Start. Java is only run inside of the container and access is provided via web interface or directly with VNC.

Container is based on baseimage-gui by jlesage

Usage

See the docker-compose here or use this command:

docker run -d -p 5800:5800 -p 5900:5900 -e IDRAC_HOST=idrac1.example.org -e IDRAC_USER=root -e IDRAC_PASSWORD=1234 domistyle/idrac6

The web interface will be available on port 5800 while the VNC server can be accessed on 5900. Startup might take a few seconds while the Java libraries are downloaded. You can add a volume on /app if you would like to cache them.

IDRAC_HOST Host for your iDRAC instance. Make sure your instance is reachable with https://<IDRAC_HOST>
