Easy enough. Just remove the "-O -" and the "| bash" to simply download
the script and read it. I hope it is pretty straightforward. It simply
downloads the Dell digital signatures and intalls the repo RPM.

Just curious, this is the first I had seen that link, where can I find
more details on that script, and what it installs?

I have been installing OMSA via the downloaded .gz file previously.
