When upgrading the following steps make 'check_openmanage' work again:

(These steps assume, that you generated the
symlink /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv)

  mv /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv  /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv.my.bkp
  mv /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv.dpkg-new /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv
  systemctl daemon-reload
  systemctl restart dsm_sa_ipmi.service instsvcdrv.service dataeng.service
  # and if you have it:
  #/usr/src/check_openmanage/check_openmanage -s -a -e -b ctrl_fw=all/pdisk_cert=all
  # rm /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv.my.bkp

While testing, i purged all srvadmin packages and installed them again.
The result was a broken
 /opt/dell/srvadmin/etc/openmanage/oma/ini/omcli.ini.

I replaced it with a copy from another machine.

*shudder*


Has anyone ever tested at dell anything?
