Openmanage 7.3 on Proxmox 3.0 (Debian Wheezy)

I ran in to a few issues while trying to install Dell Openmanage on the latest version of Proxmox (3.0).

In order to get things working correctly on Proxmox 3.x, here are the steps that are required:

#echo “deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu wheezy openmanage” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list
#gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
#gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add --
#sudo apt-get update
#apt-get install libcurl3
#sudo apt-get install srvadmin-all
#sudo service dataeng start
#sudo service dsm_om_connsvc start

Once you get everything installed correctly you will be able to log in to the Openmanage web interface here:

https://<hostname or ip address>:1311

The first time you log in you should use the ‘root’ username and associated password.

    Ant ideas?

    root@sosaria:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# gpg -a –export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add
    bash: sudo: command not found
    gpg: [stdout]: write error: Broken pipe
    gpg: iobuf_flush failed on close: file write error
    root@sosaria:/etc/apt/sources.list.d#

    I had to omit the “sudo” command from your instructions to get it to work on Proxmox v3.4. Looks like it works just fine. Thanks for the simple write up!

    These notes were helpful for me getting openmanage running on Proxmox 3.4, however, for the uninitiated like myself, the following tips should be noted:
    [1] promox defaults to having you login as root. although this is not desireable, it’s the default and as such you need to remove all ocurrances of ‘sudo’ in the steps given or else the commands fail
    [2] the first command failed for me using copy/paste because the double quote character was not the basic ASCII one but rather an open quote/close quote special characters which debian CLI doesn’t like

    It seems that dataeng is set to start on system startup but dsm_on_connsvc is not. What are the additional steps required to enable the Openmanage web interface on startup of Promox VE?
