The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller(iDRAC) Service Module (iSM) is a lightweight optional software application that can be installed on PowerEdge servers. The iDRAC Service Module complements iDRAC interfaces: Graphical User Interface (GUI), RACADM CLI, Redfish and Web Service Management (WSMan) with additional monitoring data. The iDRAC Service Module architecture uses IP socket communication and provides additional systems management data (OS/device driver) to iDRAC and presents one-to-many consoles with access to systems management data through OS standard interfaces.
Via iDRAC, monitor the supported servers for critical system hardware, firmware, or software issues. Very infrequently, an iDRAC may become unresponsive. Previously, a customer would have to turn off the server by unplugging the power from the server. Now, by using the Remote iDRAC hard reset feature, if an iDRAC becomes unresponsive, perform a remote iDRAC reset operation without the need to shut down the server. Administrative privileges on the host OS required to use this feature. By default, the remote iDRAC hard reset feature is enabled.
The event logs for hardware storage pool alerts or events will be monitored by iSM with Server Storage correlation feature. Currently the server storage subsystem is monitored when Dell EMC storage controllers are used in RAID mode. But in Storage Spaces(SS) or Storage Space Direct(S2D), the server storage subsystem is monitored in a pass-thru mode or the SATA chipset is used to create the storage pool. With this feature, the hardware defined alerts covered by LifeCycle log and software defined alerts covered by OS logs are merged and the alerts are registered in the iDRAC Lifecycle logs. This feature is installed with the iDRAC Service Module package and will be enabled by default. User can change the preferences in the iDRAC settings. As part of the monitoring, iSM will audit the logs for potential failures and warnings. iSM will embed the SS correlation events on the Host to an equivalent LC event.
See the version specific Dell EMC iDRAC Service Module User's Guide, then the Installing iDRAC Service Module topic for information about the software requirements, system requirements, and the steps to install, upgrade, and uninstall iSM.

I'm new to MSIX and I wanted to ask, I'm currently using InstallShield to package a number of windows drivers, when I looked at MSIX I only saw examples of packaging apps for the app store, so I wanted to ask:
@Sharla_Akers, since your reply it seems like msix has added support for Windows Services -us/windows/msix/packaging-tool/convert-an-installer-with-services.Does this mean it also supports kernel drivers? Specifically I am interested to understand if msix will be a good fit for installing an application that includes a Windows Filtering Platform callout driver, -us/windows-hardware/drivers/network/introduction-to-windows-filtering-... or if msi should still be used for that use case.

The PIC 18F2550 microcontroller is a 28 pin part with a built in USB 2.0 interface. As mentioned before, the chip integrates everything connected with the USB including a 3.3V regulator, memory buffers and the USB transceiver. All that you need to do is to connect the USB cable to pins 15 and 16 of the chip and place a capacitor on pin 14 to help smooth the inbuilt 3.3V supply. The clock for the microcontroller is derived from the 20MHz crystal with the two 15pF capacitors providing the correct loading for the crystal. Internally within the 18F2550 the 20MHz is divided by 5 to give 4MHz and then used to synchronise a phase locked loop (PLL) oscillator running at 48MHz. This is the main clock used within the microcontroller and is used to drive both the USB interface and the CPU. Running at 48MHz this is a speedy little chip so we do not have any issues with performance. The ISCP connector is there so that I could reprogram the 18F2550 without pulling it out of its socket. It is mostly used for prototyping so you can leave it out if you want. Note that the 10K resistor on pin 1 of the 18F2550 is still needed to pull the reset line high. Power for the circuit is drawn from the +5V supplied by the host computer on the USB cable. The whole circuit only draws a few tens of milliamps so it is not a significant load. This 5V is dropped to about 3V by three 1N4001 diodes to provide power for the Cypress CYWUSB6935 chip which is mounted on a small PCB (the CYWM6935 module). Each diode will drop about 0.7V resulting in a total voltage drop of about 2V. This is a crude way to derive a 3V supply but it is low cost and does the job without any hassles. The CYWUSB6935 chip has protective diodes on its inputs, which clamp the signal line to its power supply (3V). This means that we can drive it with 5V signals from the microcontroller with series resistors to limit the current. This is the purpose of the 3.3K resistors, they limit the current in the clamping diodes to less than a milliamp when the PIC's output goes to 5V. CYWM6935 Module The CYWUSB6935 chip comes in a tiny package designed for machine assembly and is virtually impossible for a mortal wielding a soldering iron to solder. Fortunately Cypress have assembled it into the CYWM6935 module along with two aerials, a crystal and a few capacitors. The connector used in the module is still rather tiny and non standard (or rather it does not use the 0.1" grid that we know and love), but it can be soldered to. For details of the CYMUSB6935 chip and CYWM6935 module go to here. Parts Listing 1 x Microchip PIC18F2550-I/SP microcontroller programmed with the firmware available in the download section at the bottom of this page. 1 x Cypress CYWM6935 radio module, 1 x 20MHz crystal 3 x 1N4001 silicon diodes 4 x 3.3K resistors (quarter or half watt) 1 x 10K resistor (quarter or half watt) 2 x 15pF ceramic capacitors 1 x 100nF multilayer ceramic capacitor 1 x 220nF polyester capacitor 1 x 100uF electrolytic capacitor (6V or higher) 1 x 28 pin IC socket 1 x USB cable with a type A connector on one end 1 x UB5 jiffy box The PIC18F2550-I/SP can be purchased from futurlec.com, farnell.com, rs-components.com, digikey.com and others. As at May 09, it should cost under US$9. The CYWM6935 module can be purchased from digikey.com, mouser.com and farnell.com. It should cost under US$15 although it may cost a lot more in the future as it is being phased out. The other parts are standard. Assembly Because the circuit was so simple I took the easy way out and assembled it on a piece of veroboard. Nowadays I would design my own printed circuit board (see custom PCBs). Rather than finding a connector for the Cypress module I simply soldered single core hookup wire directly to the connector pins. This supported the module and allowed me to position it away from the microcontroller to minimise interference. The USB cable was made from a standard USB cable with type A and B connectors, I just cut off the B connector and soldered the wires directly to the veroboard with half an inch of heatshrink tubing to keep it neat. That left the type A connector at the other end, ready to plug into the computer. Note that the red and black wires in the USB cable are +5V and ground respectively. You should check these with a multimeter before soldering them in. The green wire is normally D+ and goes to pin 16 of the 18F2550 while the white is D- and goes to pin 15. The shield does not have to be connected. The final touch was to drop the assembly into a standard UB5 "jiffy" box with a notch cut out for the USB cable to pass through. Plugging It In Because the scanner uses standard USB it can be connected to any computer, although the software is written only for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Before you plug the scanner in you must install the software first. This is available in the download section below. Failure to install the software first will result in Windows identifying the scanner as an "Unidentified Device". During installation of the software a device driver is installed and it is this that helps Windows identify the scanner. After you have correctly installed the software and plugged in the scanner you should see the device show up under "Other Devices" in Device Manager as shown on the left. When you fire up the desktop software (ISMScanner.exe) you should see the message in the software window stating "Connected to Geoff's 2.4GHz Scanner". If you get "Scanner not found" then the scanner is not plugged in or not working. PIC Firmware The firmware running on the PIC 18F2550 was written for the CCS C compiler and uses the CCS USB protocol stack, which in turn appears to be derived from Microchip code. At the top level it is quite simple, it just repeatedly steps through the frequency range taking readings. For each frequency it takes repeated readings until it gets what seems to be a consistent value. It then saves that value and moves on to the next frequency. When it has finished running through the band it sends off all readings to the computer over the USB. The CYWUSB6935 chip steps 1MHz at a time and the band is 85MHz wide, so the number of readings sent to the computer is 85. Despite the repeated measurements needed to get a consistent reading the chip achieves quite a good performance, about 4 complete spectrum scans every second. The firmware and source code for the 18F2550 is available from the download section below. Windows Software The software running on the computer was written in Visual Basic 5. It is not particularly sophisticated, for example it keeps polling the USB interface to see if new data has arrived and that uses up a lot of CPU time. But, you don't generally use the scanner for a lot of time and you would not normally be running computer games at the same time, so this inefficiency is not of great importance. The software on the computer saves the set of readings into an array. When it comes to drawing the spectrum display on the screen it steps through all the saved readings for each frequency looking for the highest reading, and it is that highest reading that it draws on the screen for that frequency. As a new reading is received the oldest reading in the array is discarded. The slider on the screen controls how many readings are saved for each frequency, the default is 350 readings which represents about 90 seconds of data. All this means that the delay has a "memory" and one high reading will hang around for 90 seconds until it is flushed out. This is done because devices normally hop around in frequency and it would be hard to see what frequencies were popular unless there was some way of holding on to the reading for a while. You can see this in action when there is a noise spike. That spike would remain on the screen for (say) 90 seconds then disappear. But a device that communicated on that frequency (amongst others) would in most probability revisit that frequency within the 90 second period and that would place a new high value into the array of values for that frequency. By adjusting the slider you control the size of this array and consequently the amount of time that it would take to flush a reading out. Smaller numbers flush more quickly, larger ones take more time. You can pause the display by clicking on the Pause button. Clicking on it again will clear the array and start a new collection. This is also a handy way of clearing everything to restart with a fresh display. The Export button will export the current set of readings to a .csv file which can be loaded into a spreadsheet like Excel. As usual, the software and source code is available for download below. 2b1af7f3a8
