Dell OpenManage Essentials

Download from the link below

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.

Is it the link below ?

Dell OpenManage Server Administrator

What's the difference between OpenManage Essentials & OpenManage Server Administrator ?

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

From Dell : 
The Dell K1000 Systems Management Appliance delivers comprehensive server management and monitoring tools.

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 ?
