if somehow you haven’t heard yet, dell released their newest management pack – finally.  it looks as if it’s been rewritten because quite frankly, if you had the misfortune of loading the previous one, then you know what a piece of crap it was.

the early word is that you cannot upgrade to 4.0.  it’ll be a wipe and reload.  anyway, here’s the link and a few light details.
