OMSA on ESXi 5.1 iDrac7 configuration?

 

So I've installed OMSA 7.3 on ESXi 5.1 and can connect OK via "Remote Remote Node" from another servers. My question is about iDrac7 configuration.

On the ESXi system in the OMSA Web GUI under "Remote Access" I can see the iDrac7 configuration on the "Properties" tab, but on the "Configuration" tab all the settings are disabled. Is this expected with OMSA on ESXi? Is it not possible to configure the iDrac7 via the OMSA interface like it is on other servers? Is there a way to enable this?

We have R720's running ESXi 5.1.

 

Also, in the OMSA interface under "Remote Access" on the "Configuration" tab it says this,

Caution
Remote Access management traffic does not function properly when the LAN on
Motherboard (LOM) is teamed with any network adapter add-in cards.

Is this important? I can't find any info on this warning. We don't have "Teamed" network cards.
