I don’t think unraid and the IDRAC care about each other.

Good to know!

From my understanding flashing it will effectively remove the raid capabilities from the card, which then in turn allows Unraid to do its job effortlessly without the potential for weird issues arising, is that correct?

Also before installing Unraid are there any BIOS settings i should make sure are set correctly?


I've scored two Dell PowerEdge T420 servers at a steal on Facebook Marketplace. I'm gearing up to install Unraid on one of them, and could use any insights available. Will Unraid play nice with iDRAC? Also, I've seen theres talk about flashing the RAID controller - any firsthand experiences or risks I should be aware of doing that process? Your insights mean a lot!

I did find out that these servers were used for Chia crypto mining. I'm bracing to swap out hard drives over time.

When they didn't get a hug first, we'd get "What am I, chopped liver."

If companies are smart, they will develop that feature and market the heck out of it as a selling point
