comment Why does ESX require so many restarts?
It was excessive in this instance as it required a) ESX upgrade b) ESX updates c) Dell updates (openmanage etc) obviously not all directly to ESXi. Spread that over 6 hosts and it added up to hours of just sitting around waiting. Like I said, it wasn't a big deal just curious as to why it was required, I was under the incorrect impression that it was a Linux kernel.

I stand corrected. I wasn't worried so much about downtime, it is in a cluster as you say. The hosts themselves take quite a while to restart, install ESXi 5.5, Restart, Stage updates, remediate, restart again.

comment Dell OpenManage iDrac
After more playing around it seemed it was just an implementation problem on my part, OME was able to monitor through the iDrac

Changed Server administrator to Essentials to better reflect the actual requirements

comment Dell OpenManage iDrac
I had installed OpenManage Essentials as part of the implementation but it looks like it still requires OMSA installed on each host, I simply can't get it to connect to the iDrac at all, though this may just be an implementation issue. I guess that's what I was trying to confirm, I'll update the question accordingly.

comment Dell OpenManage iDrac
I am trying to manage a remote server with OpenManage, the question was regarding the required installation of OpenManage on the remote server or if OpenManage can utilise management functions remotely from the iDrac alone.

@HopelessN00b Thanks for the confirmation, we have decided to revert back to using a login script. Should have put that in an answer an I would mark this as closed.

I'm angling so hard to get SCCM but the cost is extremely prohibitive to our company unfortunately. I'll keep looking, I don't think GPO deployment is going to cover it this time... spewing.

Thanks for the response. We have been using login and GPO scripts for quite a while but I was looking for a different, more managed approach. The problem wouldn't exist if we used DFS but that's off the table. Are you aware of any info or doc's regarding the definite effect of cross GPO installs?
