This is the community-supported Dell OpenManage repository for Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS or later LTS releases. It is NOT officially supported by Dell and is provided as an unofficial build for customers not able to use our officially supported builds of OMSA for RHEL and SLES. On Dell servers supporting it, we recommend using the remote management functionality provided by iDRAC over WS-MAN, IPMI and remote racadm.
Builds are also produced for Debian Jessie, although they are not as thoroughly tested. Ubuntu 10.04 and Debian Squeeze & Wheezy are no longer tested for these builds (for old OMSA versions for those releases, visit here). Below, you will find instructions on how to install and setup OpenManage command-line and web interfaces.
CHANGE IN REPOSITORY FORMAT:
Note that the repository line that you need in sources.list has changed. You will need to replace it with the format indicated below.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR UPGRADING:
If you are upgrading, in step 4, you must use apt-get install <meta-package name> or apt-get dist-upgrade. Do not use apt-get upgrade, as doing so will not upgrade all the necessary packages.
$ sudo echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu precise openmanage' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.listReplace precise with jessie above if you are running Debian Jessie. trusty is also a valid string if you are running Ubuntu 14.04. If you would like to restrict your system to a specific OpenManage release, such as the 7.4 release, you can specify it like this:
$ sudo echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu precise openmanage/740' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list
$ sudo gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
$ gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add -If you are behind a firewall that only allows outbound traffic over port 80, you may need to use this instead. In the first line below, you possibly need to add "--keyserver-options http-proxy=http://<user>:<password>@<proxy>:<port>".
$ sudo gpg --keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
$ gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
For example, to install all of OMSA:
srvadmin-all — Install all OMSA components srvadmin-base — Install only base OMSA, no web server srvadmin-idrac — Install components to manage iDRAC srvadmin-idrac7 — Install components to manage iDRAC7 srvadmin-webserver — Install Web Interface srvadmin-storageservices — Install RAID Management dtk-scripts — Install DTK dcism — Install iDRAC Service Module
$ sudo apt-get install srvadmin-all
Note: If you are upgrading, you must use apt-get install or apt-get dist-upgrade. Do not use apt-get upgrade, as doing so will not upgrade all the necessary packages.
The dataeng service, which is required to run any CLI commands in OMSA, starts automatically at reboot. If you want to manually start the service, issue the command below.
To use web interface, users with appropriate permissions need to be added.

$ sudo service dsm_om_connsvc start
$ sudo update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults
$ sudo apt-get --auto-remove remove srvadmin-all
$ sudo apt-get --auto-remove purge srvadmin-all
