Dell OSMA on Proxmox/Debian Buster

I found a Reddit post that I wanted to make sure I kept in case it gets deleted and lost forever.

My Issue

I have some Dell servers that I wanted to enable iDRAC on remotely via a secondary network interface. Unfortunately, I didn’t have physical access. So I needed to use OSMA to enable iDRAC and configure the necessary network details.

Proxmox and Dell OSMA

If you have a Dell server and you want to be able to use the OSMA (Dell EMC OpenManage Server Administrator) on your Proxmox server. Here’s a quick guide that someone posted on Reddit and on the Proxmox forums.

WARNING

The code below on the Proxmox forums works, but the Reddit code doesn’t.

Since the code is half-baked on both. I’ve maintained my own version.
