The install is fine but randomly OMSA does not report acqurate results.
I manage a lot of systems and I found this problem i.e. no storage
controllers found to many installations.

So the issue that I cannot realy rely upon OMSA has anyone experienced
such a weird behavior?

Thanks for your response pjwelsh
