Installing Open Manage on PowerEdge 2650
Posted on 2010-08-30
I'm installing Open Manage on PowerEdge 2650 to administer a raid array. The controller is a Perc 3/Di. I'm able to use the open manage cli and web tools for other server functionality but the storage functionality is missing.
I'm suspecting that the firmware/bios versions are too old. Can any one confirm this?
Are there any other tools that could be used to administer this raid array from linux?
I've tried Open Manage versions 5.1, 5.4, 5.5, and 6.0.2.
Here are the Open Manage reported versions:
Bios version: A10
Bios release date: 2/13/2003
Firmware, Baseboard Management Controller version: 2.00
Firmware, backplane firmware version: 1.01
Current Dell firmware versions are 2.8.x and bios is A21.
