I need to install open manage on my ESX 4.1 server. I've downloaded the Zip file to the server running vsphere. I then put the ESX server into maintenance mode. I have the VMware vsphere CLI installed on the server running vsphere. I run the following command on the pc running vsphere:
C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vSphere CLI\bin>vihostupdate.pl --server 19
188.8.131.52 --install --bundle c:\users\vmmgr\downloads\OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-7.4.0
It then asks me to login to esx so I do that. It then tells me that it is applying update and then gives me the following error:
There was an error resolving dependencies.
No VIB provides 'libargtable2.so.0' (required by cross_dell-openmanage-esxi_7
Any thoughts on why I can't install open manage?? I am running ESX 4.1
Here is a walkthrough to assist you with using OMSA with ESXi
Installing OpenManage Server Administrator on ESXi 4.1
Installing Offline VIB Bundle
i. Copy the OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-7.4.0-876.VIB-ESX41i_A00.zip file to a directory on your system.
ii. If you are using Microsoft Windows, navigate to the folder where you have installed the vSphere CLI utilities to execute the command mentioned in step 4. If you are using Linux, the command is installed when you install the vSphere CLI RPM.
iii. Shut down all guest operating systems on the ESXi host and put in maintenance mode.
iv. Execute the following command:
v. Enter the root username and password when prompted.
vi. The command output displays a successful or a failed update.
vii. Restart the ESXi 4.1 host system.
viii. When you run the command, the following components are installed on your system:
Enabling CIM OEM Providers
