OpenManage version: 7.3.2
Have installed OpenManage Server Administrator Web Server on a virtualised windows server 2012 R2. Unfortunately this will not run and fails with error: Browser type is not supported.
The intention is to connect to the Hyper-V Host on which we have installed: OpenManage Remote Enablement.
You can run OpenManage on the host. Page 59 of this link gives you a guide:

What we have actually installed is:
On Hyper-V host:
Dell OpenManage 7.3.2Server Administrator Web Server: not installedServer Instrumentation -> Management interfaces -> Remote Enablement: Install
On virtualised server:
Dell OpenManage 7.3.2Server AdministratorServer Administrator Web Server
Problem is trying to run Server Administrator on the virtualised 2012 R2 it fails to run with error:
Running Server manager on the Hyper-V host is no solution as we intend to drop that back to server core install when configuration is completed.
Get the feeling that Dell OpenManage is not compatible with Windows Server 2012 R2! Have now installed Server Administrator on the hyper-V host and fails with same error: "Browser type is not supported"
So when are Dell going to release a version of OpenManage which is compatible with Server 2012 R2?
Version 7.4 is now available: http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER02020149M/1/OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-WINX64-7.4.0-866_A00.exe
You may have to edit a server.xml file for it to work in host:
I recommended editing
Find where it says
address="*" and change the * to the ipv4 address of a NIC
Restart the DSM connection service.
Thanks Geoff, works perfectly. Didn't need to make the address change that you described.
Just installed everything on the hyper-V host, including:Server Administrator Web ServerRemote Enablement
Then on the virtualized server didn't install anything just created a link to https://VMHost:1311
