Hi, I'm new to OMSA installation on Linux OS.

I buyed a second-hand Dell PowerEdge 2850 and I installed UBUNTU Server
11.10 on it.

It seemed to work fine and I decided to install Dell OMSA using this UBUNTU

*After rebooting of the machine:*

*# status:*

*dell_rbu (module) is stopped*

*ipmi driver is running*

*dsm_sa_datamgrd is stopped*

*dsm_sa_eventmgrd is stopped*

*dsm_sa_snmpd is stopped*

*dsm_om_connsvcd (pid 1461 1460) is running*

*# omreport storage controller:***

*No controllers found***

The web-based GUI shows "Main Chassis" and "Storage" empty, while
"Software" has only "Operating System", that is also empty.

So, I restart the Services and:

*# restart*
