Checking servers for firmware/driver updates etc

Hi folks

I've got a hundred or so Dell servers + Dell disk arrays dotted around
the country.
They are different models from PE66xx, PE2850, PE2950, R900, R710 etc.

The arrays include PV220, MD1000, MD3000.

Is there a recommended practice for keeping all servers up to date with
drivers, firmware etc ?
The older servers won't work with the newer versions of OM.

Logging onto each server, checking the current version of OM, seeing if
an updated version of OM will work, installing that version of OM,
checking for updates etc ...

There has to be an easier way than that, can anyone recommend anything ?
