Hi,

I am confused related to the installation of a firmware for Dell Server PowerEdge R510( I am not sure whether it has been installed or enabled in my server).

Here is the firmware  Dell EMC OpenManage Integration 7.1.1 for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).

I am able to download it (with the browser; not with “download manager”)

Here are the Details:

Date modified: 8/21/2019
Name: OMIMSSC_v7.1.1.2035_for_VMM_and_ConfigMgr_A00
Type: Compressed (zipped) folder
Size: 1,143,167 KB

When I execute by double-click the above zipped folder,  I get the followings:

RPM_Yum_Repository (file folder)
Readme text document.

When I execute by double-click “RPM_Yum_Repository (file folder)”, I will get a lot of files; especially files with RPM extension.

I am confused now: I do not see any EXE file here, when I execute  “RPM_Yum_Repository (file folder)”

Question:
1) Is the the above firmware (= OMIMSSC_v7.1.1.2035_for_VMM_and_ConfigMgr_A00) has been ENABLED or INSTALLED in my server? (i am confused as i do not see any EXE file)

2) If Not yet enabled or installed , please show me how to enable it?

Thanks,
tjie
