I manage a variety of Dell servers running FreeBSD, only 610 and 1950s
work with racadm but everything that can be done with racadm can also
be done with ipmitool. I just use ipmitool to get around instead of
their proprietary racadm stuff. What functionality do you need from
racadm and maybe I can give you an ipmitool equivalent?
