RT utilities - choose which drive/partition to format

Currently, in the RT Utilities - Software palette, we find the Format.VI, but it would be useful to be able to specify which partition/drive to do it for. 

This way, even systems running in (RAM) memory (for example, by taking advantage of the PXE boot) could be formatted easily.

If you're dealing w/ the Linux-based boxes, I'd suggest using the usual netboot and ssh tools from GNU/Linux world, maybe w/ ansible, for those deployment tasks. I really wouldn't do such things from LV. (you can call external programs from LV).

OTOH, you might like to have a look at labgrid.
