Automated P2V Cleanup: Remove/Uninstall Dell OpenManage & Broadcom/Intel Drivers

So how many times have you done a P2V only to have to go back and manually cleanup all the extra crud a physical server requires--Dell OpenManage Server Administrator(Dell OSMA), Broadcom Drivers and Management Applications, Intel Drivers and Management Applications, etc.  Now expand that to having to do over 500 P2Vs in a few month span and you find the need to automate....

Presenting a huge honking script to automate those pesky uninstalls, right now it's only Dell specific, but I plan to expand it to other vendors like IBM & HP.

This Removes:

  • Dell OpenManage Server Administrator
  • Broadcom Drivers and Management Applications
  • Broadcom NetXtreme II Driver Installer
  • Intel(R) PROSet for Wired Connections
  • Intel(R) PRO Network Connections

I like to control the reboot so I don't use that...
