Anyone knows if Dell OpenManage CIM module 6.5 for ESXi 4.1 does support Dell PowerEdge 1855 and 1955 servers?

Compatibility list does not show these models, it sounds quite strange to me as without CIM module hardware informations can't be retrived from ESXi so hardware monitoring can't be achived

Link to the module:


Thank you all for help!!


Yes it is supported. After install the CIM module on ESXi 4.1 I had to set Configuration -> Software -> Advanced Settings -> UserVars -> CIMoemProviderEnabled = 1 and then reboot the ESXi server. Then I was able to connect to ESXi using OMSA 6.5
