I have a ESXi 5.0 host that has a Dell PowerVault MD1000 directly connected to it. Is there a way to manage the storage device?

Well there is no management software or cli for those DAS type things try looking in OSMA.

It's normally managed by Windows OS, not from the Host.

That was my thinking so I installed OpenManage on a guest machine that is stored on that array, hoping I could connect to it from there. But OM wants an IP or hostname and since its DAS it doesn't actually have one.

It wants the IP or hostname of the "Host attached to the DAS" not the DAS. If you can reach the IP of the ESXi host from the guest OS, put this into OSMA with "root/password"

I tried that and got "Internal Error". That helped. ;)
