same situation here. After Dell support told us to move /etc/vmware to
somewhere else, the controller did show up again. According to their
statement, development is working on a fix. So probably we have to wait
until OMSA 6.4. Cannot move VMware server off this machine atm.
By the way, the installer of OMSA - if you don't use the repository -
does also fail in this scenario. It assumes if /usr/bin/vmware exists,
it is running on ESXi and then fails to determine the version of ESXi
