OpenManage Server Administrator 7.0 for Ubuntu is now available for download. This is a major new release, as OMSA 7.0 is designed with PowerEdge 12G servers and iDRAC 7 in mind. We've tested OMSA 7.0 with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which is great, since Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS introduces support for Dell PowerEdge 12G servers, including PCIe-SSD drives. If you are still using Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS, don't fret, as OMSA 7.0 will work on Ubuntu 10.04 systems as well, although Ubuntu 12.04 is what is recommended on PowerEdge 12G systems.

Check out what is new in OMSA 7.0 by going to the documentation page for the release: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SOFTWARE/omswrels/om70/index.htm

If you like this release and would like for Ubuntu builds of OpenManage System Administrator to be officially supported, please provide feedback by talking to your account manager or sales representative. Customer feedback is the best way to show your support for OpenManage for Ubuntu.
