A DRAC 5 error has occurred–Media Active-X plugin install

Recently had this issue after getting DRAC 5 to work in Internet Explorer 9 (IE9).

Whenever going to the media page I would get offered the install, but the error would be on the page. Clicking install would drop me back to the login page for the DRAC.

I have found 2 fixes.

1. Add the IP address of the DRAC server as a site into the local intranet zone in the security tab in Internet Options.

2. For the internet zone, in security tab in internet options, select custom level and in the ActiveX controls and plug-ins Enable Automatic Prompting for ActiveX Controls.
