Certification notes

Dell iDRAC and MAAS

This system may not work out of the box in a MAAS environment because IPMI over LAN is disabled by default on Dell iDRAC controllers. Therefore, before you can fully use this system in a MAAS environment, you will need to ensure IPMI over LAN is enabled in the iDRAC settings on your hardware.

We are working with Dell to resolve this and expect it will be fixed in a future release or update to MAAS
