DRAC for Poweredge R200

Can anybody recommend the DRAC card for the R200? Looking on eBay I'm finding various DRAC cards.

Appears to be a DRAC 4/P: »www.ebay.com/dsc/i.html?_lncat=0···&_sop=15

Thanks. Didn't want to pull the trigger without confirmation.

I'm thinking "no.... it can't be a DRAC 4, those are for the old 6/7/8 series severs, my 2950's used the DRAC 5, the R200 has to be newer." And then I find this: »www.dell.com/downloads/global/pr···_new.pdf. Down at the bottom of the feature list is says DRAC 4/p. Go figure.

As a heads up for anybody wanting to use this on the R200 (or I would assume similar models), you must have the DAS27TH26D1 riser card in your system. The newer riser, DAS30xxx has two PCI-E slots but no planar connector. The DAS27xxx has the PCI and planar connector.

Gotta wait for another part to arrive now.
