I was having trouble installing Dell OpenManage 7.1 (I am running Dell servers in my cluster), These are the steps that worked for me:

Run the following commands in the console for the node.

Code:
echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/deb/latest /' | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list
Code:
gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
Code:
gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | apt-key add -
An older version of libssl is needed to install the packages.

Code:
wget http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110406T213352Z/pool/main/o/openssl098/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7_amd64.deb
Code:
dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7_amd64.deb
Code:
apt-get update
Code:
apt-get install srvadmin-all
Code:
service dataeng start
Code:
service dsm_om_connsvc start
Code:
update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults
You will then need to use Internet Explorer to view the Web portal, due to a sl_error_weak_server_ephemeral_dh_key in firefox and chrome.

Thank you so much!
I spend all morning trying to figure that out
This link was impossible to find as " http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libssl0.9.8 " does not work anymore.
Code:
wget http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110406T213352Z/pool/main/o/openssl098/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7_amd64.deb
Thanks again

Just to add, if you really want to use FF
Code:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste dhe and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha preference to switch it from true to false (disable Firefox from using this cipher)

(4) Double-click the security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha preference to switch it from true to false (disable Firefox from using this cipher)

Then try the site again; you might have to reload the page using Ctrl+Shift+r to bypass cached information.

Well unfortunately it does not work like that with jessie.
Up to the point where "apt-get install srvadmin-all" is entered everything seems fine BUT then you have the "cannot be installed" messages.
I tried it with v8.3 with libssl 0.9.8 and everything works just fine. Without it it just does not.
I don't have any problem with 8.3 on jessie / proxmox4 without libssl 0.9.8

Hi guys! I trying to install this on my R710 but I don´t know how to add the repository.

Code:
 sudo echo 'deb <Not allowed to post link because of new user> {release-name} openmanage' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list
what do I write instead of {release-name}?

I´m running Proxmox 4.4 on a R710 with H700 idrac6
