Hi Daniel,

>From the following matrix it seems like OMSA 6.3 is supported with RHEL 5 32bit.
I'm trying to get confirmation about this point.

Would you mind to try to download the first file that I send you and try again?

Thanks

	Diego

Hi Dennis,

Yes: Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 5.5 on EM64T systems only :-(

Hi Diego,

I downloaded this smaller file, for RHEL5.5 only.

No matter how I run the installation, with --express or not, I keep getting the following message:

~/dell/OMSA6.3# sh linux/supportscripts/srvadmin-install.sh --express
Error: Check whether the Dell OpenManage media is corrupted.
       If you are using the Web pack to install Dell OpenManage,
       ensure that you use the Web pack corresponding to the
       architecture and operating system on your system.

I downloaded the file again, verified its signature (gpg says it's a good signature), but still, I get the same error message.

Is this package 64-bit-only? I'm running 32-bit with the PAE kernel.

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Dennis

I have tried installing the OMSA using the Dell yum repository (by installing the srvadmin-all package), but that doesn't seem to help much. After yum is finished, the following line is added in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf:

When I login to the DRAC web interface, I can see the current state and values of the fans, temperature, power usage and so on. When I login to the OMSA webinterface (hostname:1311) as the root user, I can see the status of the PERC controller. Changing a value in the "Alert Management" tab however leads to an unresponsive OMSA webinterface. Restarting the OMSA services (srvadmin-services.sh restart) doesn't help to get the OMSA webinterface fully functional again.

I can see all the information I'd like to poll with SNMP in de DRAC and OMSA webinterface (which makes you believe all the components can be "read" by the higher software layer), but when doing an snmpwalk on the .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1 OID, I get a lot less results. Although according to the "Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Version 6.1 - SNMP Reference Guide" I should see a lot more Groups. I do see some, but not all. Here's a list with installed OMSA packages:
