Dell EMC iDRAC Tools for ESXi, v9.4.0

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 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 updated packaging supporting the installation of both local and remote RACADM and fixes to issues documented below.

These tools include:
- RACADM Command Line Interface (CLI): Enables scripting of iDRAC management operations.
- Supported Versions: ESXi 6.5 U3, ESXi 6.7 U3
