Just a quick note from the field (as it were).  If you’ve been blessed enough to get a Cisco C-series server, there’s a nifty new Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC) release available as of today’s writing.

Version 1.0(1e) was the shipping release as of January 2010.

Version 1.0(2) is the latest point release available as of March 2010.
