I have this working with Ubuntu 6.10 AMD-64 Desktop on a 2900, you don't 
mention whether you are using a 64 bit kernel / distro, but I hope these 
might be some hints that are useful to you.




First I had to replace the sh equivalent from dash (Ubuntu desktop 
std.)  to bash. Dash seemed to confuse some of the startup scripts.

dpkg-reconfigure dash and answer the question(s)

I had to then reinstall the dellomsa package (or at least reconfigure 
it) so that the postinst script would run cleanly. I looking at your 
output you don't seem to have those issues, but ...






Re #3

On my system the /var/lock/ directory disappears at each reboot, and 
***therefore *** the /var/lock/subsys/ directory needed by the
/opt/dell/iws/bin/linux/dsm_om_connsvc script is not there after reboot, 
and the script fails because it can't create a lockfile.


I modified the script to check for and make this directory, but you can 
test this by:

sudo mkdir -p /var/lock/subsys

and then

/opt/dell/iws/bin/linux/dsm_om_connsvc start

should set the omsa demon running and listening on port 1311



netstat -a
....
tcp        0      0 *:1311                  *:*                     LISTEN
....


Note:
To do anything useful (as in reconfigure disks etc.) with the web 
interface you have to enable the root user on Ubuntu (it is disabled by 
default)

sudo passwd root

is one way, Google for others

#1

$ps axf

18443 ?        Ssl    0:07 /opt/dell/srvadmin/dataeng/bin/dsm_sa_datamgr32d
18523 ?        Ss     0:00  \_ 
/opt/dell/srvadmin/dataeng/bin/dsm_sa_datamgr32d
18487 ?        Ssl    0:00 /opt/dell/srvadmin/dataeng/bin/dsm_sa_eventmgr32d

So it does work. The daemons need  /var/lock/subsys/ to put their 
lockfiles in, so if it does not exist they will not start up correctly.
After you create it (see #3 at the top), try to restart the daemons.
