"Not officially supported, as OMSA is mainly designed for hardware support, and technically a VM has no hardware.Appreciate the quick response, Scott!
One of our other users on the site has been using OMSA on VM's for purposes like yours. Give it a try if your comfortable falling outside the "official" support arena. If 5.5 won't install you might try 5.4 or 5.3."
"simply create a file "c:\nosystemcheck.txt" and start the MSI file ..."I had the same error message ("This is not a supported Dell server"), though the machine actually was a supported Dell server. But it was a strange installation (OS disk was cloned from an older Dell server, then upgraded to Windows 2003; there were remains of older OM versions...)
