[Linux-PowerEdge] OMSA Web Interface Login problem

Hi all

We have a similar problem on an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system. We have installed everything as on several other servers, but in this case, no login is possible.

The omarolemap in /opt/dell/srvadmin/etc is edited to include a existing using and has the correct permissions, the dms_om_connsvc is up and running (and has been restarted several times, as well as a restart of the server), but when trying to login we only get "Login failed").

The main difference is, that on that server we had previously installed the OMSA from http://ftp.sara.nl/pub/sara-omsa and changed to the repository version, whereas the working systems were always first installs of OMSA.

Does anyone have an idea, what may be the source of that problem?

Kind regards, Thomas

I just reinstalled a NX3100 server with CentOS 6.4, and installed the srvadmin-all (v7.3). However, it appears that I am unable to login via the web interface. 

I used the URL <https://my.server.tld:1311>, which prompted me for my username and password. I entered root and the root password, and clicked on Submit. The page just refreshed, without any error message. There isn't anything logged in /etc/secure or /opt/dell/srvadmin/var/log/openmanage/omcmdlog.xml. Coincidentally, if I use some arbitrary password, same thing would happen.

Any idea what might be happening?
