Configure PowerEdge Servers with iDRAC and XML

For those still reading from my days in the firmware, PowerEdge development team. Peter Tsai and the TechCenter team are hosting a chat later today on the The Dell iDRAC7 (Dell Remote Access Controller) ability to allow you to configure and manage Dell PowerEdge servers through the iDRAC’s Config XML functionality. Using ConfigXML, you can also tweak XML files to make configuration changes to one or many PowerEdge servers at the same time.

You can join the chat here. If you arrived here after 3pm Central on November 5th, or want to do some pre-reading, you might find this a good place to start.
