Install Dell OpenManage on Hyper-V Server 2008 R2


Note this document explains the installation of Dell Openmanage on Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 – this is the “free” version of Hyper-V based on Windows Core. This does not cover adding the Hyper-V to a “full” installation of Windows.

You will need the Dell Systems Management and Tools DVD. If you do not have this then I suggest downloading Dell OpenManage Managed Node from the Dell website.

Pre-Requisite Checks

  • On the Hyper-V console go to the CMD prompt and change to the DVD drive (e.g. d:)
  • Then enter:-

    cd \SYSMGMT\srvadmin\windows\PreReqChecker

    runprereqchecks.exe /s

  • You should get no output. If you get an error code returned please see this document for more info


  • Again in the CMD prompt enter:

    cd \SYSMGMT\srvadmin\windows\SystemsManagement\

    msiexec /I SysMgmt.msi

This will install Dell Open Manage on the server. You then need to open the firewall to allow incoming connections on port 1311. Enter the below command

        netsh firewall add portopening TCP 1311 DellOpman enable subnet

The installation is now complete. You can verify this is working by going to
