If you use check_mk (http://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk.html) instead of Nrpe or other solutions, a snmp-based check (could be used natively with iDRAC 7) is allready build in - no OMSA/OME needed
iDRAC 6 based servers could be monitored with a few tricks through IPMI standard

Hi,

what you need is to install Dell Ome plugin for nagios (I have not tested) , then you can add the host and attach the plugin. what version of Nagios are you using?
why not monitoring using Nrpe agent installed on the server ? why do you need OME?

Hope this helps,

Yes I know. I am using Nagios too.. it's amazing.
are you using the free version? then it's nagios core I guess..
Nagios Xi  is paid..
if you are using XI you can go to configuration --> new monitoring wizard.. from there it's easy..
post back on version..
