Installation

Dell has started releasing community supported(unofficial) OMSA since 6.3. Therefore Sara team has stopped development of new versions. For installation instructions: http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/deb/latest/

For details about Dell released OMSA: http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/deb/

Instructions below are specific to Sara team's OMSA.

First, install openipmi and ipmitool:

 sudo apt-get install openipmi   sudo apt-get install ipmitool 

install lib32ncurses and ia32-libs:

 sudo apt-get install -f lib32ncurses5   sudo apt-get install -f ia32-libs 

Grab the OMSA:

 wget ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/outgoing/dell/binary-amd64/dellomsa_5.5.0-5_amd64.deb 

Install OMSA:

 dpkg -i dellomsa_5.5.0-5_amd64.deb 

For 64-bit users

The rest of this may only be relevant for users that have 64-bit systems and are using Sara team's OMSA.

You will need to download the old ia32-libs DEB file and extract the libstdc++ library.

 wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/i/ia32-libs/ia32-libs_2.7ubuntu6.1_amd64.deb 

 dpkg-deb -x ia32-libs_2.7ubuntu6.1_amd64.deb ia32-libs 

 sudo cp ia32-libs/usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5.0.7 /usr/lib32/ 

 cd /usr/lib32 

 sudo ln -s libstdc++.so.5.0.7 libstdc++.so.5 

Testing your installation

Now you should be able to run some of the tools.  sudo omreport storage controller
