Yeah, with srvadmin-all.  Fresh install on both R710 and 1950.

[root at testbox ~]# omreport storage controller
No controllers found

[root at testbox ~]# omreport chassis info
Error! Chassis info setting unavailable on this system.


from our kickstart post-reboot script:

yum -y install srvadmin-all
/usr/bin/ start

after we do that, we install Dell firmware upgrades and do a yum update. 
   I wonder if maybe one of those breaks it?

I know it seems like it should work with just the storage packages, but I think some of the underlying services are set up by other packages.  6.2 is now working for me with clean install on CentOS 5 with PERC6i and SAS5i controllers.  Haven't tried it on an H700 yet.
