[Linux-PowerEdge] Proper version of OMSA for 6800?

 We had a version at some point that worked completely. However when I run the srvadmin-services.sh start command I get this:

[root at arrowhead ~]# srvadmin-services.sh start
Starting mptctl:
Waiting for mptctl driver registration to complete:
                                                           [  OK  ]

DRAC4 probe: DRAC4 pci device not found                    [FAILED]
Starting Systems Management Device Drivers:
Starting dell_rbu:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting ipmi driver:                                      [  OK  ]
Starting Systems Management Data Engine:
Failed to start because system is not supported
dsm_om_shrsvc: DSM SA Shared Services cannot start on an unsupported system. See the Dell Systems Software Support Matrix for a list of supported systems.
Starting DSM SA Connection Service:                        [  OK  ]

I suspect that is causing my stuff to not show up in the OMSA web gui. When I run omreport it can't find any controllers either. So I think I will try going back down to 6.5.

I am guessing that somewhere along the way we upgraded OMSA without testing compatibility of it. According to yum we are running OMSA 7.1 on the centos 5.4 install. What version do I need in order to make this work on this hardware? Also what is the proper way to remove the too new version and install the proper one. Thanks in advance.
