So, tested the tools, with my following howto:
Code:
echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu jessie openmanage' | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list
apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 42550ABD1E80D7C1BC0BAD851285491434D8786F
apt update
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openslp-dfsg/libslp1_1.2.1-10+deb8u1_amd64.deb
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u6_amd64.deb
dpkg -i *.deb
apt-get install  srvadmin-storageservices rpm srvadmin-base srvadmin-idracadm8 srvadmin-itunnelprovider srvadmin-oslog srvadmin-server-cli
ln -s /usr/bin/rpm /bin/rpm
It works, fine... but the connection between Proxmox and the IDRAC-Servicemodul (DCISM) does not work, why? ... the packages is not available anymore. So what have i done:

Tested this packages:
Code:
wget http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu/pool/trusty/openmanage/830/iSM/dcism-2.3.0.ubuntu14.deb
wget http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu/pool/jessie/openmanage/830/iSM/dcism-2.3.0.deb8.deb
wget http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu/pool/wheezy/openmanage/820/iSM/dcism-2.2.0.deb7.deb
But non of them did work!
Code:
ISM0003 [iSM@674.10892.2 EventID="8196" EventCategory="Audit" EventSeverity="error" IsPastEvent="false" language="en-US"] The iDRAC Service Module is unable to discover iDRAC from operating system of the server.
Code:
racadm get idrac.servicemodule
Code:
[Key=idrac.Embedded.1#ServiceModule.1]
iDRACHardReset=Enabled
LCLReplication=Disabled
#OMSAPresence=NA
OSInfo=Enabled
ServiceModuleEnable=Enabled
#ServiceModuleState=Not Running
#ServiceModuleVersion=NA
WatchdogRecoveryAction=None
WatchdogResetTime=480
WatchdogState=Disabled
WMIInfo=Disabled

But not on IDRAC9. We did not use the tools anymore. Really bad support. For Monitoring SNMP with CheckMK (everything automaticly). And for Service and Raid the IDRAC9 Interface. So tools not needed anymore.

Hey!

Since i figured this out, decided to share for posterity:
Code:
echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/openmanage/iSM/340/stretch stretch main' | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list && \
apt install dirmngr && \
gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F && \
gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add - && \
apt update && \
apt install dcism

Cheers!

Doesn't look like there's a repo for Buster (Debian 10) yet. Anyone able to get it working there?

Hi,
I use a different but most secure method to install OMSA on my Proxmox cluster.
Having deb packages via wget does not permet to get the corrected packages.

excerpt from /etc/apt/sources.list:
###################################################################################
#
# Monitoring Dell serveur
#
deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/openmanage/940/bionic bionic main
deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/openmanage/iSM/351/bionic bionic main

#
# Ubuntu for Dell OMSA
#
deb http://mirror.plusserver.com/ubuntu/ubuntu/ bionic universe multiverse

#
# Megacli
#
deb http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian buster main
###################################################################################
Of course, you must add the keys from Dell, Ubuntu and Megacli.

Then in /etc/apt/apt.conf i give a prioriry to Debian packcages:
APT : : D efault-Release "buster";

I put space betwen : : and D because Idon't know how to suppress emoticon. ::D

I install fisrt with wget as seen in Wiki, but with my solution, I'm quite sure I will get uptodate bionic packages
