Dell Server LCD Update Script

Wouldn't it be great if you could use the LCD on a Dell PowerEdge to display the names of the VMs running on it? You may never to know where a VM actually, but if you do, you usually need it badly. Well Nickapedia wrote the script and the HOWTO for you: Dell Server LCD Update Script.

It uses Dell OMSA on ESX and IPMI to get access to the VM names and then outputs these on the LCD. Brilliant! See video on YouTube!

BTW: won't work on ESXi because OMSA is not supported there.
