On all my esx 3.5 servers the Dell OMSA is installed.
Is it possible to retrieve information from the OSMA with powershell ?
Like racadm getsysinfo on the console.
Thanks in advanced.
AFAIK there are no PowerShell cmdlet for DELL OMSA. But you can always call the racadm program from powershell.
Besides that it's also possible to retrieve info using WMI on the host. See http://www.delltechcenter.com/page/Sample+PowerShell+Scripts+with+OMSA
You've got a point there Luc. No WMI to ESX(i).
I think the CIM can work, but I also think you should need a DELL CIM Agent.
If you're on ESX full (not ESXi) you probably can use a powershell wrapper around plink.exe to use SSH on the console and retrieve info that way.
I forgot the reason for my question.
I need to find out what the Drac ipaddress is. This information is stored with in the OMSA.
But perhaps is there a different way to get this info?
