OpenManage Essentials is not what you need. You need OpenManage Server Administrator (Managed Node). If you want a link, let us know what system you have and which OS you are running. It is under Systems Management on the Drivers and Downloads page for your server.

I just realized you are the same person with like three identical questions.

Here is the link again:

OpenManage Server Administrator is the agent installed on each server, needed for central or local management/monitoring.

OpenManage Essentials is a central management software. It interfaces with the OMSA agent and by itself cannot monitor an individual server's hardware.
I use and prefer Hard Disk Sentinel

The link that I post above is a OMSA application.  Correct ?
 
For central management, I need to install OpenManage Essentials on one of the server, and then install OMSA agent on other servers such that I can centralize the management, correct ?

Kace is a different product altogether.

Hard Disk Sentinel might be able to see the disks and test them (but ONLY if it supports Dell PERC's), but it cannot interface with the controller itself to pull logs, reconfigure arrays, or perform RAID maintenance tasks.

The link that I post above is a OMSA application.  Correct ?
No, your URL has a typo and doesn't work. If you change deatll to dell, then it will work, and it IS the right application, but it is a version out of date. Use the link I posted.

For central management, I need to install OpenManage Essentials on one of the server, and then install OMSA agent on other servers such that I can centralize the management, correct ?
Yes.
