I've installed OME and RepoMan on the same server. Open RepoMan in Server mode, try to create new repository for OME.
Start the wizard, make it to the Summary, click finish, and get this error every time:
Error retrieving inventory from Dell OpenManage Essentials
Hi and thanks for the post.
Did OME complete a full discovery&inventory before ran RM repo creation? RM may encounter problems to get the inventory details.
There is a runtime log at %localappdata%\RepositoryManager\log by RM. It may have error message in details.
In the log (that is difficult to read, what format is it? XML?) the error that shows is:
<ApplicationData>InvCompliance.CreateCompliantUpdates: Exception getting compliant updates: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.</ApplicationData>
The full discovery and inventory is complete, that is not the issue.
Hmmmm....not obvious from this message.
Btw, the log is in Microsoft WCF tracing format(svclog). Using Microsoft service trace viewer tool (svctraceviewer.exe) may have a better display.
It looks like I'll have to direct you to support to open a ticket (800-945-3355 ) so we can dig a bit deeper.
Hi guys, please be sure to post the results of the support case, as I am running in to the exact same issue.
I am using 1.4, the current download from TechCenter.
I can confirm that I am, in fact, a member of the OmeAdministrators group. I am logging into the application as the server's local administrator account, too.
