1. Download both OpenManage 6.5 & 7.1

  2. On the Hyper-V Server we need to install SNMP. Open Command Prompt and run the following command:

    On Hyper-V 2008 R2:
    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:SNMP-SC

    On Hyper-V 2012:
    Install-WindowsFeature -Name Web-Server -IncludeAllSubFeature

  3. Extract OpenManage 6.5 and 7.1 to c:\OpenManage65 & c:\OpenManage71 on the Hyper-V Server.

  4. cd c:\OpenManage65\windows\prereqchecker
    runprereqchecks /s
    echo Return Code = %ERRORLEVEL%

    Error code should be 2. If other, see link below:

  5. cd c:\OpenManage65\windows\SystemsManagement
    msiexec /i SysMgmt.msi

    Choose Custom and add the Remote Enablement option.

  6. Add Firewall Exception for Web Interface:

    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Web GUI” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=1311

  7. Using steps 4 & 5, install OpenManage 7.1, making sure to replace “65” with “71” in #4.

  8. Browse to https://servername:1311 and log in with your Windows credentials.
