Dell and OpenManage on ESX hosts

We are a 100% Dell shop running 6 Dell 6850s and 4 2950s. Has anyone had any issues running Dell OpenManage on their ESX hosts? Our hosts are at 3.0.1 and 3.0.2 level. A while back we had an issue (not OpenManage related) with one of our ESX hosts and the first thing VMware told is they do not recommend running any 3rd party products on the host...

I would be planning to install OpenManage 5.2.

I already have my SC memory increased to 800MB. Looks like I'll have to wait until I upgrade to 3.5 before switching to 5.3.
