Hi experts - I'm new with VMware and taking over an existing setup.    Running VMware ESXi, 5.0.0, 623860 with the vSphere client ver 5.0.   Five Virtual machines are setup and we want to determine if any of the hard drives are having issues and so therefore are looking to install Dell OpenManage  on one of the hosts.  The instructions are not clear to me, i'm not sure I have the right version (http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/driverdetails?driverid=Y0WHR) .    Would like to get clarification on how this works and the necessary steps involved.   Maybe there is a better solution to analyze and monitor the hardware?  Something built into VMware?    The server is a Dell PowerEdge 2900.
