Agreed, would be done by now. 
But if I can script that, other people will have to do some as well :)
We are migrating old to new servers.

I'm done for today, back to drawing board on Monday!
Hopefully I can figure out how to boot DTK from PXE, run my scripts to
setup raid and possibly DRAC and reboot server so RH can boot from PXE
and install from provided KS. Easy.


Kind Regards

FWIW, I looked at the DTK docs and decided change my 40 new servers
manually! It doesn't take too long once you get stuck in over a remote
DRAC console.
