Location of the Software

All files for the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator software version 5.1 can be found on the NDPF web site at http://www.nikhef.nl/grid/ndpf/files/. You need the OM_5.1_ManNode_LIN_A00.tar.gz bundle and extract it on the local machine.


  • Extract the tar-ball to local disk, e.g. in /tmp
  • Install the kernel-source RPM for the currently running kernel
  • Add the word "Taroon" to /etc/redhat-release, or modify the detection script in prereqcheck/ to recognise CentOS.
  • from the "linux/supportscript" directory, run srvadmin-install.sh -x
  • (re)start the service with srvadmin-services.sh restart
