Install Dell OpenManage on Ubuntu 14.04

For more detailed instructions, see the official site.

Add the apt repository information by creating the file:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo echo 'deb trusty openmanage' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

To verify the package signature, add the following repository key to apt:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add -

Update apt with new repository information:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo apt-get update

Then install the required packages. To install everything:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo apt-get install srvadmin-all

Or you might just be interested in the omreport and omconfig commands – in which case, install the srvadmin-storageservices package.

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo apt-get install srvadmin-storageservices

Make sure the following service has been started:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ sudo service dataeng start

You should now at a minimum be able to run tools like omreport now:

andy@ubuntu14:~$ omreport storage pdisk controller=0
