Installing Dell OpenManage Server Administrator on Linux

R710 Dell™ OpenManage™ Server Administrator is Dell's version of the HP System Management Homepage, as it allows you to log into a web interface to view system configuration, health, and performance statistics.  Its availible for free and runs in Windows and Linux.

Dell makes the install easy on Linux due via a public rpm repo. The steps below outline the simple install process.

Install OpenManage Server Administrator

Step 1: wget -q -O – http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/bootstrap.cgi | bash

Step 2: yum -y install srvadmin-all

Step 3: Start  Systems Management Data Engine – /etc/init.d/dataeng start

Step 4: Start webinterface – /etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc start

Your system homepage is now availible via https://hostname:1311, where hostname is the hostname of your server.

Install Firmware/Bios Management Tools

Step 1: yum install dell_ft_install
Step 2: yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)

Now run either inventory_firmware or inventory_firmware_gui to view your firmware versions, and perform firmware upgrades.

    Error: Missing Dependency: perl(LWP::UserAgent) is needed by package sblim-sfcb-1.3.7-1.6.4.el5.x86_64 (dell-omsa-indep)
    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: package-cleanup –problems
    package-cleanup –dupes
    rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
    The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
