Dell, there may be an issue with OMSA 7.3 that prevents people logging in if their passwords have non-alphanumeric characters in them.   I'm unable to login as myself into OMSA until I change my password to only letters and numbers.   I can't login with other accounts which have special characters as well, but ones without seem to work fine.  I didn't have this issue with 7.2.  It's affecting both a Server 2008 R2 and Server 2012 machine.

This is an issue on RHEL6 as well. Very annoying!

RE: Announcement : Dell OpenManage Server Administrator – OMSA v 7.3 is available Now.

I have several Dell PowerEdge R320 with OMSA 7.3.0 installed. All of the servers have continual issues with starting all the OMSA services upon reboot specifically the "DSM SA Data Manager" service. Also OpenManage essentials is unable to communicate with OpenManage on these servers after a reboot of the nodes until all the OMSA services are restarted. OpenManage shows a grey question mark for the status of the servers.

All the servers are running Windows 2008 R2 SP1. I have at least 4 servers doing the same thing.

The only thing shown in the system event log about Server Administrator is an event id 1006: Automatic System Recovery (ASR) action was performed. Action performed was: Unknown


Is there a bug in the OMSA 7.3.0 code that needs to be addressed?

I was having the exact same issue described by Cook-User7571. Turns out there is a bug in OMSA 7.3.0 on Windows and Linux with credentials having non-alphanumeric characters in the password. I have verified this in my environment. There is a patch for OMSA, 7.3.0.1, which was released last month and fixes the problem. Luckily only the Server Administrator web portion needs to be updated and not the agent on all ESXi hosts.
