Problems running OpenManage on Linux Joshua_Giles at

Array Manager provides harddrive status to IT Assistant.

Array Manager supports Windows but not Linux currently, so harddrive status
is reported to IT Assistant for Windows systems but not Linux systems
currently....that should change pretty soon.

Subject: Problems running OpenManage on Linux


after solving all problems that prevented installing the
Dell OpenManage Server-Agent on our 1550 RedHat 7.1
testserver I have got another problem:
If I have look at the IT Assistant I see things like
fan speed or temperature from that linux-server. But
if I pull out one of the harddrives there's no sign
at the IT Assistant. I tried it with another 1550
that was delivered in the same (yet unchanged) configuration
but with OS Windows 2000 Server and there it works!

Thanx a lot for your help.
