Open Manage For CloudEdge Systems

Note that "runs" does not equal "supported".  OMSA is not officially supported on CloudEdge.  That said, OMSA does not do anything to intentionally prevent it from working.  Features that are industry standard such as SMBIOS and IPMI should work.  Dell proprietary extensions to smbios and IPMI might (or might not) work.  OS based features should work.  Non-standard interfaces such as those provided for RAID management probably will not work although if an LSI card is being used, it too might work.  Key take away is that OMSA was designed to dynamically discover the underlying features and interfaces and degrade gracefully.  We don't test these scenarios (since they should only be encountered on unsupported systems), so there is risk it may not function now or in some future release.

It's not? It seems to run fine on mine. Also lets me look at the ESM
logs which the BMC won't.
