Hi All,

I am setting up a Centos 3 box to use OMSA 5.0 (or hoping to) and after
installing all the rpms from the yum repo
( and running the start command, here is what I get.

# start
Starting Systems Management Device Drivers:
Starting dell_rbu:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting ipmi driver:                                      [FAILED]
Starting Systems Management Device Drivers:
Starting dell_rbu: Already started                         [  OK  ]
Starting ipmi driver:                                      [FAILED]
Starting DSM SA Shared Services:                           [  OK  ]

Starting DSM SA Connection Service:                        [  OK  ]

Does anyone know why ipmi failed?  It rpm installed fine with dkms.

Are their more services that should be started?  If so, anyone know how
to enable them?
