Correct Andrew, in the next release we will address this issue making  dell_ft_install  arch dependent. But will suggest you to use this(making separate repo for rhel5 and rhel6) as of now.  

Thanks,
Rathish

I understand that, but we import both the RHEL5 and RHEL6 packages into our satellite server and because you haven't differentiated the names (with a %dist in the version) the RHEL6 package is the only one satellite stores as it sees them as the same package.

Could you please get the version of package changed to include a el5 for rhel5, and el6 for rhel6. Then we won't have this problem.

Hi Andrew,
Please use rhel5 and rhel6 packages differently. The dependency of the dell_ft_install are OS specific. This will get rid of pcissd problem that you are facing.

Thanks,
Rathish

The problem is that we sync the dell repository to satellite and keep both the RHEL5 and RHEL6 packages. Because dell_ft_install is a noarch package with no distribution set it stores a single copy (the one it synced first, which in our case was RHEL6) which it delivers to both RHEL5 and RHEL6 installs.

But you actually have different versions. The RHEL6 version depends on dell_ie_pcissd, but the RHEL5 version doesn't.

Could you please fix this.

Hi Andrew,
You can remove pcissd and install dell_ft_install to check whether it is pulling pcissd?

Thanks,
Rathish

Hi Andrew,
In the latest OM7.2 --
dell_ft_install does not have a dependency to dell_ie_pcissd. May be you are using older dell_ft_install. Can you please check once and let us know?

Thanks,
Rathish

Hi,

I'm having troubles installing dell_ft_install on RHEL 5.9 and OMSA 7.2. It works fine in RHEL 6

yum install dell_ft_install
