OMSA 6.3 from dell repo - no controller found

In the initial observations which you shared most of the OM services
were not running.

Please try to :
1. restart the OM services and see if this resolves the problem.
2. If #1 doesn't resolve, then reinstall OM and check. Better to check
if all the OM rpms are installed.

Thanks ,
Raghavendra. B

Hi Dirk,
same here, dell is not able to reproduce so far.
Small correction with RAM, the first one has less, 8GB to the second 
with 16GB.
