Unable to setup alerts on a Drac / Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 6 Enterprise

If you have a DRAC / Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 6 - Enterprise and are unable to set up alerts via Google Chrome, I have noticed a little bug where the menu simply states "ok" instead of going to the correct page.

The easiest solution is simply to use Internet Explorer, however, I recommend you attempt to upgrade the DRAC to the latest version available, this is a painless process and does not require the server to be reset.

Next, try pressing the Control + F5 to refresh your cache and you should hopefully now be able to get in to the menu.

I have been seeing mixed reports on this - it appears to work for some people and others seem to still have the bug... Hopefully you will be one of the ones it works fine for.

Android error sending email: Unable to sign or encrypt message certificate not installed

Someone in the office came to me with a problem today, saying that every time they tried to send an email, the following message is displayed:

unable to sign or encrypt message certificate not installed

It turns out that, for some reason, the option to sign outgoing messages had been turned on by accident - without any client certificate installed for this feature to actually work.

To fix it - there are two options:

1) Install a client certificate if you actually want to sign outgoing emails.

2) Turn signing off.

Hardly anyone signs emails and I am guessing that most people who want to use it will already know how to!

As for turning signing off, it is pretty straight forward.

1. Go to Email settings (Easiest is in the email client, click the menu button and go to settings).

2. Go down to Security Options

3. Untick sign.

Hope this helps!
