Thanks, I managed to download both images using FTP. Do I create 2 DVD's from these images ?

"make sure to follow the instructions on the download page for each ISO"

You need to create a single DVD ISO image from these two ISO's ... you need to merge the two files using the copy /b command at the Command Prompt.

It looks good so far, just copied both files into one iso file. I was just commenting how long the end to end process is. Thanks John

btw, one can purchase the OpenManage subscription kit for a year, and they would send you the quarterly SMTD disk that you just downloaded and the Server Update Utility disc. Unless they changed the kit.

It is a bit convoluted, but it supports nearly every server Dell has (that is still worth having deployed).

Rey is right ... they do have an OpenManage subscription, but I didn't mention that because I think it's silly to pay hundreds of dollars for the subscription ... just for the DVD.

Hope I got the right files as there was a OM_6.5.1_SMTD_A01.iso.002 version on the FTP site

You will need both 6.5.0 ISO's:

ftp://ftp.dell.com/secure/sysman/OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.001
ftp://ftp.dell.com/secure/sysman/OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.002

Also, because of all this, it is sometimes simpler and faster to just install the OS directly from the OS DVD 🙂
