A older model Dell PowerEdge 1850 server was donated to my organization. I got MS Server 2008 R2 installed but there is a flashing orange indicator light on the front. I know what this typically means and read on another post that you can use OpenManager to see what the error is but when I tried to install it I don't see anything new in the start menu of admin tools menu that is new. Would appriciate any help. Thanks

When you install Open Manage on the server, it should put an icon on the desktop for it, as well if it did install correctly then you should be able to hit open manage with your web browser \\localhost:1311

Also check and ensure that the 4 open manage services are running, they all start with DSM

Once installed and you go to https://localhost:1311 (or simply use the Server Administrator shortcut to open it), go to System, Logs tab (make sure it is showing the "Hardware" logs).

Hint:  Add localhost to Intranet Zone and you won't have to sign in (although you will still get a warning about the security certificate).

Thanks for the help. Downloaded the ftp link of the newest software and if worked fine. I might of been installing the wrong component of Open Manage. Turns out a memory module was bad. Thanks for the tip to add to intranet zone to avoid entering the password everytime.
