How to install Dell OMSA on Ubuntu 16.04

I use Dell OMSA to manage iDrac, and to be able to do that, I need to install it on my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop.

The instructions on the Dell OpenManage page doesn’t specify the correct key servers, so please use the following commands instead to add the correct key:

sudo gpg --keyserver hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F
sudo gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add -

Now add the repo:

sudo echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/ubuntu xenial openmanage' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list

Finally, refresh your packages and install the base package (without the web server):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install srvadmin-base srvadmin-idracadm7

If you want more than just the base package, pick any of the following:

srvadmin-all Install all OMSA components
srvadmin-base * Install only base OMSA, no web server
srvadmin-idrac * Install components to manage iDRAC
srvadmin-idrac7 * Install components to manage iDRAC7
srvadmin-idracadm8 Install components to manage iDRAC8
srvadmin-webserver * Install Web Interface
srvadmin-storageservices * Install RAID Management
dtk-scripts Install DTK
dcism Install iDRAC Service Module

Enjoy!
