Hardware Health Support via IPMI for Dell DRAC and HP iLO

SAM should support hardware health monitoring of Dell PowerEdge and HP Proliant servers without the need to install manufacturer specific software on the server. This information is exposed and available agentlessly when out of band management cards are purchased with the server at additional cost. SAM should be able to leverage that investment by allowing users to poll hardware health status information, similar to what is available via SNMP or WMI, via the IPMI protocol through Dell's Remote Access Card, or HP's Integrated Lights Out management card.
