Does Installing Dell OMSA on a Linux server require a reboot?

I would like to install Dell OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) for Linux on a server that is running Red Hat and is being used in a live environment. Rebooting the server is do-able, but will cause major headaches and require a lot of work before and after. Installing OMSA on a Windows server does not require a reboot. I have tried to find out if this is the same for Linux. Even the Dell person I was speaking to was non-commital. So, can OMSA be installed on a Linux server without causing any outage?

No you don't need to reboot.
Are you going to use the yum repository?
I would recommend using it : http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Repository/hardware
Basically, you just need to do :
  wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/bootstrap.cgi | bash
   yum -y install srvadmin-all

Actually I am not a Linux person, I am just gathering the information for someone else. So what difference does it make if we use the yum repository?

It is easier to install, it has been tested many times and you can easily get updates.
