  • Hello, Thanks for your post. We are aware of this and a fix is planned for the upcoming release.
    Please uninstall all of the packages including the config files and then reinstall the required packages.

    $ sudo apt-get --auto-remove purge srvadmin-*

    Please let us know if this resolves your issue.



  • Hi,  Were you able to try the above suggestion? If yes, did it solve the issue for you?



  • I managed to install 8.4 but it's not working in most used cases

    # omreport chassis temps
    I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/opt/dell/srvadmin//var/lib/openmanage/xslroot//oma/cli/omclpr.xsl"
    xsltParseStylesheetFile : cannot parse /opt/dell/srvadmin//var/lib/openmanage/xslroot//oma/cli/omclpr.xsl
    Error! XML Transformation failed

    with srvadmin-base

    With srvadmin-all I get 

    # omreport system summary
    Error! Invalid INI file: omcli64.ini
