I have encountered the exact same problem. First of all, IDRAC 7 runs only on Firefox 3.5+ or Internet Explorer 6-10 (IE11 and Chrome are not supported).

Is your browser set to send Polish as the preferred language? It appears that the DRAC will try and load a locale file for anything but English and only some of them exist (French, German, Spanish) :/
Since you can get in via SSH but not the browser, the DRAC is semi-functional, not dead. The first thing you should do when deploying a new server is update the firmware(s). If you're a big organization, you'll have a standard accepted level so you should update to that level. If not (sounds like your situation), simply use the latest from the vendor. BIOS ...
The slotname is a descriptor set by the chassis manager and not retrieved from the installed operating system on your blade server and may not actually match your hostname. You can get the ip-address for the iDrac management console with racadm getniccfg -m server-<n> where <n> is the slot number 1-16: racadm getniccfg -m server-1 Normally ...

Depending on the drive size it can take several hours to sync.
I use something like this on a variety of PowerEdge R<something> systems: #!/usr/bin/perl -w # # Jesper Nyerup <firstname.lastname@example.org> my $ipmitool = '/usr/bin/ipmitool'; my @chararray = split(//, join(' ', @ARGV)); usage() if (@chararray == 0 or @chararray > 14); system("$ipmitool raw 0x6 0x58 193 0x0 0x0 ". sprintf('0x%x ', ...
As others have mentioned, SNMP hardware polling doesn't work with OMSA on ESXi so you can't use check_openmanage, but since your goal is hardware monitoring, you might look at check_esxi_hardware.py plugin (for Dell, HP, IBM). It works exactly as advertised on ESXi 5.1 with OMSA 7.3 and has very similar output to check_openmanage.
