Option Support Statement

The following optional adapters for this server are not currently supported by 16.04 LTS via either the 4.4 or 4.10 kernels: Dell EMC PERC10 RAID Controllers – H740p, H840 Qlogic NIC’s – QL41264, QL41164, QL41262

Support for these optional adapters will be available in the 16.04.4 HWE kernel.

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
