While working on dell servers I have found it easier to check & troubleshoot the hardware contents of server which is running Windows. But I faced challenges while working on the servers running Linux on it.

I found this utility at The Geek Stuff called OMSA - OpenManage Server Administrator on Linux which works with Dell PowerEdge Servers. This is a web based application which can be used to manage the Dell PowerEdge Servers running Linux. Using OMSA you can perform proactive system monitoring, system diagnosis, troubleshoot hardware issues and configure RAID etc., You can also view and manage hardware’s embedded system management (ESM) log using OMSA.

The following steps will explain you the steps that needs to be taken to install this application:

Download DELL OMSA

Go to DELL support website -> click on “Drivers & Downloads” -> choose your server model (I selected PowerEdge 2850) -> choose the operating system -> scroll-down and expand ‘Systems Management’ -> Click on ‘OpenManage Server Administrator Managed Node’ -> Click on OM_5.5.0_ManNode_A00.tar.gz to download it. You can directly download it to your Linux server using wget:

Install DELL OMSA

You need to extract the downloaded file and perform an express install. You can find the commands below for the same:

[[email protected] omsa]# cd OM_5.5.0_ManNode_A00
[[email protected] OM_5.5.0_ManNode_A00]# sh linux/supportscripts/srvadmin-install.sh --express

Output:
