Dell OpenManage 8.3 on Debian 8

Instructions are a modified re-post from the dell site here. First we will need to add the Dell OpenManage Debian Repository to our machine with the following command.

Next to verify OMSA packages, add the repository key to apt and make apt aware of the new software repository by issuing the following command.

Next, install one of the following selection of meta-packages to install the OMSA functionality you require. For example, to install all of OMSA: sudo apt-get install srvadmin-all. Refer to table below:

OpenManage Meta Packages (apt-get install [package])
srvadmin-allInstall all OMSA components
srvadmin-baseInstall only base OMSA, no web server
srvadmin-rac4Install components to manage the Dell Remote Access Card 4
srvadmin-rac5Install components to manage the Dell Remote Access Card 5
srvadmin-idracInstall components to manage iDRAC
srvadmin-idrac7Install components to manage iDRAC7
srvadmin-webserverInstall Web Interface
srvadmin-storageservicesInstall RAID Management
dtk-scriptsInstall DTK

To use web interface, users with appropriate permissions need to be added. Add users with appropriate permissions to /opt/dell/srvadmin/etc/omarolemap file. See detailed information in the User’s Guide. Note, that To start the web server and start the dsm_om_connsvc service at boot, issue the following command:

Once the service is started and installed for automatic startup, go to https://[ip_address]:1311/ in your browser to access OMSA.
