PV2XXA00 Using 100% CPU under Centos-4.5

Hi,

I'm running into a problem with a PV2XXA00 process on Dell PE 860 servers
running CentOS-4.5.  The problem appears to be related to the Dell Open
Manage software I have installed.

[root at tmoukprodds1 ~]# rpm -qf /opt/dell/srvadmin/oma/bin/dsm_om_shrsvc32d
srvadmin-omacore-5.2.0-460


The PV2XXA00 process is using 100% of the CPU:

I haven't done anything explicitly to invoke this command.  Rather, it seems
Open Manage wants to patch firmware for a PoverVault 220 (which I'm not
using.)

This looks like some type of inventory collector process.

[root at tmoukprodds1 ~]# /opt/dell/srvadmin/cm/invcol/invcol

Any help is greatly appreciated.
