I was upgrading our dell openmanage on a server by first removing the old version and then I installed the new version 5.5. Once I rebooted and tried to logon it gave me login failed, I tried a couple of passwords but no luck. Any suggestions.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is 5.5 supported for that server?
Any Server Assistant events in the event log?

Try re-installing.
there is a program call OMClean.exe

Use "srvadmin\support\OMClean\OMClean.exe" found on your "Installation and Server Management" CD to remove the old version of Dell OpenManage

And that's a good point 65td; what model server do you have? if you had omsa installed it shouldn't matter, but still.
