Dell OpenManage

Description:

Dell OSMA is a software that you usually install on Dell physical servers that reports the health and status of system components.

To Resolve:

  1. This page is meant just as a few reference commands that you can run on a Dell server with OSMA installed. You could probably script this, but I just setup a PRTG sensor that pulls all this data automatically (somebody had to write it though!). There are 3 “level 1” commands and many others that branch off those: omconfigure, omreport, and omhelp.
