I have checked the FAQ but didn't find anything regarding this issue.

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2800 running CentOS 6.5 (x86_64) and have
installed the current OpenManage tools (srvadmin-all-7.4.0)

However, when I go to the OpenManage web page (https://server:1311/)
and log in, I can't see the status of my RAID controller or disks -
instead, I get the dreaded message "No storage controllers detected".
>From the command line I get the following:
# omreport storage controller
No controllers found

I did find the following web page, that indicated the 64-bit version
of OpenManage 6 had issues detecting controllers:

However, it appears that there is no 32-bit version of OpenManage 7.4
for CentOS/RedHat 6 - I did try the fix above, to force a 32-bit
install, but the RPMs seem to simply not be there.

Does anyone have any tips on how I can manage my server? My main
priority is to be alerted if any disks fail.
