Join the Dell iDRAC - WSMAN & RACADM chat on Tuesday September 24th 3:00 CST
The Dell iDRAC (Dell Remote Access Controller) makes your job of managing Dell PowerEdge servers easier by allowing for remote configuration, management, and updates via scripts.
In today's chat, we'll teach you how to simplify remote configuration through the Dell iDRAC by creating scripts using both RACADM (Remote Access Controller Admin) and the WSMAN standard.
RACADM is a command-line utility that provides a scriptable interface that allows local or remote configuration of Dell Remote Access Controllers. Web Services for Management (WSMAN) is a DMTF standard that can be used to remotely manage Dell Servers. Tools such as WinRM and Openwsmancli use WSMAN.
This chat compares the usage of RACADM and WSMAN interfaces and aims to answer questions such as - When would you need to use RACADM over WSMAN or vice-versa? What are the use cases where one interface is preferable to the other?"
Before the chat, get up to speed by reading these Dell TechCenter articles:

The TechCenter team and I are excited to inform you that the Telligent community platform that www.DellTechCenter.com runs on is being upgraded this week. The official launch of this upgrade is this Friday morning! Starting Wednesday 8/21, the community will be in read-only state until 8/23 when our platform upgrade completes. You can find out about the awesome new search and social sharing features available in this upgrade in a blog published earlier this week.
Unfortunately, this read-only state will prevent users from posting in forums or making any community updates during this transition period. However, you can always still engage with the TechCenter team and the rest of the community on Twitter and Facebook:
If you can't make the chat and also have suggestions for our Dell experts, send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The virtual desktop solutions delivered by the Cloud Client Computing organization in Dell has undergone rigorous performance analysis and characterization to ensure that they deliver optimal end-user experience for our customers. However, in addition to the scenarios for which this performance analysis is carried out, our customers sometimes ask us some very interesting “what-if” questions in relation to additional scenarios. What if I want to migrate to Office 2013, will this impact on per-host density? What if I want to use a boot-on-demand environment – is there a density impact?
Join us online for the Desktop Virtualization Wht-Ifs - Office 2013 and Boot-on-demand TechChat, as we answer these questions and more.
When: Tuesday August 20, 2013 at 3:00 PM Central US time.
