We use Dell OpenManage on Centos 4.5. First you have to trick the
OpenManage software (and installer) into thinking you have RHEL. For
v4 you add "Nahant" to the end of line of text in /etc/redhat-release.
Nahant is the code name for RHEL4 and Dell software looks for it to
know what type of system you are running.

Then you need to add a few lines to your snmpd.conf:

rwcommunity  <comunityname> <monitor ip address>
view all included .1
smuxpeer .

Where <communityname> is a name of your choosing and <monitor ip
address> is the IP address of the machine that will be querying SNMP.
Make sure to use the same community name in your Dell Server Assistant
discovery configuration.

It's all in the documentation (except for the Nahant trick).

Good luck,
