Dell OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) installation on XenServer 6.0.2

In order to install OMSA 6.5 on XS 6.0.2 , we need to get latest ISO from Dell site. Connect this ISO to the Dell Server via virtual CD ROM

Mount the CD-ROM on XenServer and run the install.sh script to start OMSA agent on XS.

This will install the require package

Insure the ports are open. By default installation does open the require ports

Start the server service

And point the URL to https://<HostIP>: 1311

I reckon it's easier to use the Dell repository, rather than the DVD ISO - http://www.alwinroosen.be/blog/2011/02/install-dell-openmanage-on-xenserver-5-6-1/

@James: I am sure there would be 1000 way but with my enterprise deployment experience (200 + host) , I have never found any customer enabling internet on any hypervisor . They don’t even enable it on Infra server vm’s unless it is required

Dell's and other user's howtos didn't mention adding the firewall exceptions and starting the server service. Thanks a ton; my only regret is not finding this article sooner!
