The rebuild of esm.o will fail with that version of OMSA unless you change 
the #include<linux/malloc.h> to #include<linux/slab.h> in one of the shim 
files.  OMSA 1.3.0.C fixes this, and is recommended.  It's on, or direct via FTP (see notes in the last couple weeks in 
the archives.)

Also, please be sure if you've got a PowerEdge 2650 that you upgrade the 
ESM firmware to v2.0.
