I have a Dell 1950 box on evaluation with 2 SATA drives connected to the
on board Dell PERC 5/i with the disks set up as a mirror
I've installed CentOS4.4 (x86_64) on the system and now I'm trying to
install/configure/use the Dell OpenManage tools that came on a CD with
I've installed the tools using the provided install script and they
appeared to install OK.
I'm primarily interested in the tools to monitor the RAID controller -
but if I type:
omreport storage controller -fmt lst
No controllers found
Also, if I use the Web interface, I only get 'Diagnostic' menus -
nothing about configuring/monitoring the storage.
As I've never used OpenManage before, I'm not sure what to expect from
Does anyone know if I have to do anything special to get these
OpenManage tools to work with CentOS4?
