You must first install OpenManage Server Administrator in Windows, then the instructions are step-by-step and simple to follow ... instructions won't make sense without the software.

I installed OMSA but when I try to Run the Server administrator it will ask me to enter USERNAME and PASSWORD but I did not enter Password when I installed the WIN 2003. I just enter username, product ID, Workgroup, Organization,

So how I can pass this LogIn interface?

Kind Regards

You login using the local machine administrator account.  If this is a domain server, you can also login using a domain admin account.

It is not Domain member. I tried with local account and It is not login with local machine account . The local Machine username is Administrator and has no Password. Please tell me if you have other means.

You would be best to set a password and try again.  There's no reason for a server to not have a password.  It may be that the login URL just won't accept a blank password.

Just like many things in Windows (like Remote Desktop),  you cannot have a blank password to login to OMSA.  Create a password for Administrator, then log in.

Also ... put your local machine, port 1311 in IE's Intranet Zone, and it should automatically login, unless you disabled that feature.

Now I can login by doing what you said !!  But when logged in I can not see Storage, PERC. I can only see System on the left side and Health Summary,asset information etc on top bar.  Where do I find Storage Management?

Run the OMSA installation again (C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe) and choose Custom and make sure that Storage Management (and all sub-features) is checked to be installed.  If it already is installed, you likely need to update your system firmware (BIOS, ESM/BMC, RAID) for Storage Management to pick up the storage devices.
