I was trying to install Dell Open Manage Server Administrator on my Centos linux servers and had a difficult time finding clear directions on how to do it. Turns out it is extremely easy. Input the following commands in the terminal (must be done as the root user):
This command adds the Dell repository where OMSA is located.
“curl -s https://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/dsu/bootstrap.cgi | bash”
This command installs all the features of Dell OMSA.
“yum install srvadmin-all”
Then you can connect to the web management interface by going to
in a web browser.
You will also need to create firewall rules in Centos to allow you to connect remotely. In my particular instance I didn’t need the firewall to be running so I simply disabled it by running the following command as root:
“systemctl stop firewalld”
“systemctl disable firewalld”
