You don't mention which system type you've got, but system ID 0x01EB
is a PowerEdge SC1435. OMSA is not provided for, and does not run on,
SC-branded systems. You're hitting the system-type block in the OMSA
installer exactly because OMSA checks the type of system it's being
installed onto and bails when it isn't on the list of supported types.
I can tell it's been a good holiday when I can't recall if the SC1435
has an IPMI controller in it or not. :-) If it does, you can use the
OpenIPMI and OpenIPMI-tools RPMs from RHEL4/CentOS 4.4 to get at basic
sensor information (fans, temperatures, power supplies, system error
log, and the like) in the absence of OMSA.
