Short Description
Connects via the IDRAC on a Dell server and collects a comprehensive inventory.
Full Description


The dell-server-inventory container is a stateless spring-boot microservice that exposes a REST API for the purpose of returning a comprehensive JSON formatted inventory of a Dell 11th generation and newer server.

The service can be called without a callback URL in order to run synchronously. If a callback URL is provided in the payload, the service will return immediately and post to the callback URL when the results are available.

How to Use


Standalone, with no configuration settings provided:

docker run --name service-server-inventory -p -d rackhd/dell-server-inventory:latest

The service can also start up to bootstrap its configuration from consul. More information about registration with and using advanced configuration settings provided by a Consul K/V store can be found in the online help.
