Hey all,

I have a PowerEdge 2850 running RedHat Enterprise 4.0 and running into
an issue with Dell OMSA 5.0.0 and IPMI. When starting
(srvadmin-services.sh start), the IMPI driver fails to load. If I run
"/etc/init.d/dsm_sa_ipmi status" I get the following output:

ipmi_msghandler module not loaded.
ipmi_si module not loaded.
ipmi_devintf module not loaded.
/dev/ipmi0 does not exist. <-- This is obviously a problem

The following packages are installed:

openipmi-33.13.RHEL4-1dkms
dkms-2.0.11-1
srvadmin-deng-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-odf-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-iws-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-old-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-storage-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-ipmi-5.0.0-463.rhel4
srvadmin-isvc-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-base-1-0
srvadmin-omilcore-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-omacore-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-jre-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-web-interface-1-0
srvadmin-diagnostics-1-0
srvadmin-cm-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-hapi-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-omhip-5.0.0-463
srvadmin-all-1-0

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
-Chris
