This script uses an iDRAC user to check the server hardware via iDRAC. It has been tested and used with dell servers and blades running iDRAC 6 & 7. It uses freeipmi to perform the actual query.

I strongly recommend using a read only user for this.

**Do not use the download listed here** Use the scripts from the GitHub link
::Dell Server Check via iDRAC IPMI Instructions::

-h, Display this help information
-H, Hostname or IP to check
-M, Specify a message to return on failure
-U, Username to connect
-P, Password to connect
This script has been tested on iDRAC 6 & 7 and requires /usr/sbin/ipmi-sensors
