OpenManage on Dell With Debian amd64

OpenManage has already been packaged into a deb file:

<uri strref=“”/> <p>Add</p>

deb dell sara

to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

You will need 32-bit versions of the pam libraries. To keep things neat, I created a simple package of the required libs

# dpkg -L lib32-pam

In my case, /opt is not a separate partition and it too small for OpenManage. I move /opt to /usr and create a symlink in its place.

mv /opt /usr
ln -s /usr/opt /opt

aptitude update; aptitude -y install dellomsa

The OpenManage web interface is not added to startup. You will need to start it manually as well as add it at boot time.

/etc/init.d/dsm_om_shrsvc start
/etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc start

update-rc.d dsm_om_shrsvc defaults
update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults

Finally, it is necessary to tweak /etc/pam.d/omauth to use the 32-bit version of the pam libraries.

auth       required     /lib32/security/ nullok
auth       required     /lib32/security/
account    required     /lib32/security/ nullok

You should now be able to log in as your root user (to give you full permissions) <uri strref=“”/>
