Set DRAC network config remotely

So I had a DRAC at a remote site that refused to play nicey-nice - I was pretty sure the default gateway was set wrong so it was unable to get out to anything beyond its LAN. I was able to SSH to a Unix host on the same network, and from there I could ssh to the DRAC in question, and do the following magical incantation:

racadm setniccfg -s

Those three sets of numbers are IP address, netmask and default gateway - setting the last one correctly... wait 10 seconds or so, and hey presto, DRAC plays nicey-nice with the network again.

A neat trick for when you can't get to the web UI.
