OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) is a software agent that provides a comprehensive, one-to-one systems management solution in two ways: from an integrated, Web browser-based graphical user interface (GUI) and from a command line interface (CLI) through the operating system.

OMSA is designed so that system administrators can manage server systems both locally and remotely on a network. It also interfaces with OpenManage Essentials (OME) and OpenManage Enterprise (OMEnt) console, which allows for monitoring of the systems in your data center from a single interface.

Through this article, We will setup E-mail alerts in Dell’s OpenManage Server Administrator using PowerShell and the OpenManage Application.

Step 1. Install Dell OpenManage Server Administrator 

If you have not installed the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). You can download and install through this link

Step 2. Download the Script

You can copy and save this PowerShell script and rename to a ps1 file. After the file has been downloaded, you need to change the parameter to fit your needs.

Step 3: Set-Execution Policy in PowerShell

Open the PowerShell application and set the execution policy to allow the script above.

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned 
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

Step 4: Run the Script Once

 Run the command to configure your alerts: “your-omsa-file.ps1 -configure” You need to change “your-omsa-file.ps1″ with the name of the script that you downloaded. This could take about a minute and will set the options in the Dell OpenManage utility.

Step 5: Test Your Script

To test script, you can either unplug a redundant power supply, or change the temperature warning threshold (just make sure to change it back).

You should get an e-mail to whatever addresses you added on the EmailTo line as well as it showing up in the Sent Mail folder of the Specified SMTPClient.
