I have the same server, except for drive size.  I had two problems=20
initially.  I had to update the driver for the Broadcomm NIC to solve a=20
problem with hangs that required a full reboot to fix, and I had to update =

the usb driver to get DRAC to work in a virtual console.  I never had the=20
problem you describe.

I'm not clear on why you have PERC5/i with only one drive.  Is the drive=20
partitioned and set up with RAID1?

Here's what I see in dmesg:

ums0: Dell DRAC5, rev 1.10/0.00, addr 3, iclass 3/1
ums0: X report 0x0002 not supported
device_attach: ums0 attach returned 6

umass1: DELL  INC. DRAC5 VIRTUAL  MEDIA, rev 2.00/0.00, addr 4
