Out-of-Band Management with Redfish and Ansible

In this article, I’ll explain how Redfish and Ansible can be used together to fully automate, at large scale, systems management tasks from one central location, significantly reducing complexity and helping improve the productivity of IT administrators.

Redfish is an open industry-standard specification published by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) designed for modern and secure management of platform hardware. On Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, the Redfish management APIs are available via the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), an out-of-band management controller used to remotely manage all hardware components on a server.
