Script Center


The Dell TechCenter provides access to scripts and code downloads that can automate data center processes to save time and simplify complex setup and configuration tasks that apply to systems management, virtualized and consolidated systems, and storage arrays.

If you have written a script that automates a process, helps simplify configuring or setting up servers or client systems, or performs a procedure, share it with the community. TechCenter moderators will verify the script and add it to this central Script Center repository, organized by systems management, virtualization, storage, and multiple script collections.
