I just got my first PowerEdge R520 in after using R710's for several 
years.  Whats the Lifecycle Controller about?  Is that Dell's term for 
the UEFI bios?  It appears that the iDRAC Enterprise is also configured 
through it instead of a separate ctrl-key combination.  I Google'd but 
didn't find much in the way of "Whats new (or should know about) in the 
Lifecycle Controllers."  Anyone have any experience with the Life Cycle 
controller and tell me what I should know about it?
