We'll that didn't work...however I spoke to Dell OpenManage Team and they
told me to try downloading OMSA 5.4.

Here is the output for it:

 

# wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_5.4/bootstrap.cgi |
bash

Downloading GPG key:
http://linux.dell.com//repo/hardware/OMSA_5.4//RPM-GPG-KEY-dell

    Importing key into RPM.

Downloading GPG key:

activating mirror mode:

  /repo/hardware != /repo/hardware/OMSA_5.4/

    and/or

  http://linux.dell.com != http://linux.dell.com

dell-hw-indep-repository-1-15.noarch.rpm

So it did install the dell-hw-indep rpm and the GPG keys and all.

# rpm -ql dell-hw-indep-repository-1-15

/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-dell

/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-libsmbios

/etc/yum.repos.d/dell-hw-indep-repository.repo

 

But still the up2date does not work.

 

Here is my sources file section for the Dell repositories:

 

#BEGIN dell-community-repository

yum dell-community-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/community//mirrors.cgi/osname=el4&basearch=i386\&
redirpath=/

yum-mirror dell-community-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/community//mirrors.cgi/osname=el4&basearch=i386

#END dell-community-repository

#BEGIN dell-omsa-hwindep

yum dell-omsa-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/mirrors.cgi/osname=el4&basearch=i
386\&redirpath=/

yum-mirror dell-omsa-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/mirrors.cgi/osname=el4&basearch=i
386

#END dell-omsa-hwindep

#BEGIN dell-hw-indep-repository

# This block is managed by the dell-hw-indep-repository RPM.

 

yum dell-hw-indep-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_5.4//mirrors.pl?osname=el4&basearch
=$basearch&repo_config=$repo_config&dellsysidpluginver=$dellsysidpluginver&r
edirect=1&redir_path=

yum-mirror dell-hw-indep-repository
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_5.4//mirrors.pl?osname=el4&basearch
=$basearch&repo_config=$repo_config&dellsysidpluginver=$dellsysidpluginver

 

#END dell-hw-indep-repository

 

Any help would be appreciated.  I couldn't find anything in:
http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Repository/FAQ that would help me.
Again I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux 4 on my box.

 

Thanks

Thanks Chris.

That makes sense.  I think it could be the /etc/redhat-release file that

it's checking.  I'll try to modify it and test it out.

Keep you guys posted.

 

Thanks

I tried to get this working on OEL4 before and got it working by editing

the part of the script where the redhat-release package is checked. I

added strings in there for OEL4. That was the path that led to

enlightenment. :)

 

I can get you the OS string, but unfortunately the test server I worked

on has already been reinstalled many times since then. :( 

 

Chris.
