We're in the early stages of deployment with these.  None of them are
actually in production yet, but we're in the final stages of putting
them there.

6.1 doesn't work with the onboard NICS -- you have to get a 6.2-RC
or wait for 6.2.  Otherwise, everything 64-bit works as far as we
can tell.  We're a little grumpy that we don't have any way to
monitor the RAID (our Dell x850 systems use megarc to automatically
signal us if a drive fails)  We've also had occasional problems
with the reboot and shutdown commands not completing, but it's been
so intermittent that we can't seem to isolate the cause.  Symptom
is that it gets to the final stage of reboot/shutdown and then waits
indefinitely without issuing the final ACPI command.

Do some searches on my name and/or those topics on the stable@
list archives for more details.
