Dell EMC iDRAC Tools for Linux, v9.4.0

AUTO INSTALLED This file was automatically installed as part of a recent update. If you are experiencing any issues, you can manually download and reinstall.
The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) is designed to make server administrators
more productive and improve the overall availability of Dell servers.

iDRAC alerts administrators to server issues, helps them perform remote server management, and
reduces the need for physical access to the server. Additionally, iDRAC also enables administrators
to deploy, monitor, manage, configure, update, and troubleshoot Dell EMC servers from any location
without using any agents. It accomplishes this regardless of the operating system or hypervisor
presence or state.

iDRAC provides out-of-band mechanisms for configuring the server, applying firmware updates,
saving or restoring a system backup, or deploying an operating system, by using the iDRAC GUI, the
iDRAC RESTful API or the RACADM command line interface.

This release of the RACADM command line interface includes packages that supports the installation
of both local and remote RACADM.

These tools include:
- RACADM Command Line Interface (CLI): Enables scripting of iDRAC management operations.
- IPMITool: Provides local and remote IPMI management of a server.
