I have 42 R410 servers arriving imminently. They will have PERC 6/i
controllers with 4 disks configured for RAID5 as, for some reason, Dell
are no longer able to supply them with RAID10 (our last batch of 34 had
exactly the same hardware config and came configured for RAID10).

So, I have 42 servers to re-configure as RAID10 before I can provision them.

Is DTK the right tool for this task? I don't fancy doing 42 servers by
launching the java console from a web browser and doing it all manually
through the PERC card bios set up tool!
