I've done that kind of thing for smaller version bumps for things like
the NIC, but considering it's iDRAC and we're going from 1.57.something
to, I felt like it would be a lot safer to do this during
an outage.  I also didn't know if there were any dependencies involved,
with other component versions (other things also needing to be updated,
in a particular order, because of the change in major version # of
the iDRAC).

I appreciate the tip though!  If we find any other systems that have
iDRAC that's in the 1.x series and the system isn't as critical, I may
give the individual .BIN update a try.
