Version 23 (modified by lars.uffmann@…, 12 years ago) (diff)

added info to get omsa web interface working on Lenny

OMSA 2 deb

The Sara OMSA Debian/Ubuntu? package is a recreation of the Dell Open Mange Server Administrator package suit. From the Dell rpm packages we created one Deb based package suitable for most Debian/Ubuntu? systems.

Current dellomsa version is: 5.5.0

Obtaining OMSA

Download the package from:

Debian setup

The archive is signed to add the public key to your own server

apt-key add debian_sara.asc


wget -O - | apt-key add  -

Add to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb dell sara 

Install the package:

apt-get update
apt-get install dellomsa

Modify the startup script for the web interface to get it running: You'll have to edit /etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc and replace (line 178)



START_DAEMON ${PROGRAM_DAEMON} -clrun >/dev/null 2>&1 &

Now the web interface should work (tested on Lenny release). Start it with

/etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc start

or have it started automatically on system startup with

update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults

To access the web interface, surf to
