Important Information

*The Dell OpenManage Array Manager software has been replaced by Storage Management which is fully integrated into Dell OpenManage Server Administrator. Users will not be able to install the Dell OpenManage Array Manager Windows agent from the OpenManage 4.5 installation kit. The Array Manager Console and Netware Agent are still available from this CD but will not be available in future OpenManage releases. The integration of Storage Management into Dell OpenManage Server Administrator provides users with several benefits, including Red Hat Linux support, a fully-featured and scriptable CLI, and localization in all Dell OpenManage supported languages (French, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese).

*In order to manage and diagnose RAID devices, Dell OpenManage 4.5 requires that the latest RAID controller firmware and driver versions are installed on your system.

*Added service pack file (MSP) support for Windows upgrade from
version 4.3 and later. MSP files are much smaller in size and are available
from the Dell Support website at "support.dell.com."

*You must uninstall OpenManage software versions that are older than version 3.0 before installing this version.
