hi matt,

thanks for your answer. this is odd. i found an OMSA package (sles10) for 
exactly that server. it's even listed as a compatible system on:

<http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=de&cs=RC1077931&l=de&s=pad&releaseid=R132112&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=178687>

is there any other method to monitor the hardware in this server?

kind regards,
mike
