Dell OpenManage

OpenManage Server Administrator allows system administrators to manage individual servers in two ways: from an integrated, web-browser-based graphical-user-interface (GUI) and from a command-line interface (CLI) through the operating system. Server Administrator is designed for system administrators to manage systems locally and remotely on a network.
