Dell OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) provides detailed information about the hardware. Handy to find out details of the physical drives, memory sticks and if there’s any failed components.
If you log a support call with Dell, chances are they will ask for more details, and possibly a DSET report, and having OMSA already installed, makes life easier.
Make it part of any new installation, not just for ESXi, but any OS. Here I will focus on installing it with ESXi.
Installing OMSA Using VMware Update Manager
From within Update Manager, add http://vmwaredepot.dell.com/index.xml as a download source. This will check for new versions of OMSA, and update them when required, just like the regular ESXi updates.
You can also download a single OpenManage .vib file and import that to VUM.
