comment How is the computer chassis type assigned
@mathias i can certainly do that for now, querying SCCM can return any values i want to check. I would be more concerned about future devices, the waters are very muddy when looking at things like convertible tablets and devices like the surface. As we trim down the models we are supporting it would probably become easier to target groups via the model name then arbitrary chassis numbers.

I was afraid of that. Its not a big deal, dealing with enterprise hardware is usually pretty reliable. I might throw some other checks in to confirm specific hardware for different models.

comment Why does ESX require so many restarts?
It was excessive in this instance as it required a) ESX upgrade b) ESX updates c) Dell updates (openmanage etc) obviously not all directly to ESXi. Spread that over 6 hosts and it added up to hours of just sitting around waiting. Like I said, it wasn't a big deal just curious as to why it was required, I was under the incorrect impression that it was a Linux kernel.

I stand corrected. I wasn't worried so much about downtime, it is in a cluster as you say. The hosts themselves take quite a while to restart, install ESXi 5.5, Restart, Stage updates, remediate, restart again.

After more playing around it seemed it was just an implementation problem on my part, OME was able to monitor through the iDrac
