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.

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?

Good link for the item-level targeting, I think that will be the way that we go tp solve the individual issue. However it still doesn't provide any concrete answers to the question of how the re-install mechanism works and if it will absolutely without a doubt try to install again if the app already exists.

Active Directory Software Install's, it's mentioned in the Technet documentation for deploying software with GPO's. I'll just remove it, saves any further clarity issues.

We are swapping Symantec Enterprise Protection for Tren-Micro OfficeScan. We need to deploy the client (which will also uninstall the SEP client).
