With the kind help of Dell Support we were able to sort things out;

- OMSA 6.3 does not show controllers when the directory /etc/vmware
exists.

By coincidence the directory existed but VMWare-Server was not installed 
anymore - I could move it away.
I have yet another server with VMWare installed - don't know what to do 
with it atm...

- OMSA 6.3 64bit does not find PERC4 controllers on all 64bit linux, 
from readme:

KNOWN LIMITATIONS

The following sections describe known problems associated with
Storage Management or the supported controllers.

* Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Storage Management 3.3  does not 
support PERC 4 controllers and earlier versions  on ESXi 4.x and ESX 4.x 
and all 64 bit  Linux Operating System.

Workaround is to install 32bit OMSA 6.3.

Rainer
