Xenserver 5.0-5.5 & Dell OpenManage

SeeSpotLearn asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
Does anyone know a workaround to be able to successfully install Dell's OpenManage Server Administrator on Citrix XenServer? Dell itself doesn't support XenServer unless its their own build of it. I have tried OMSA 5.4, 6.1, 6.2. It will not install because the operating system is unknown. I have install each RPM one at a time and they have installed but they still do not function

Just so you can see the iptables and snmp...
