Add Dell Repository to your Server
wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.3/bootstrap.cgi | bash
Install DOM on Remote Server

Restart snmpd service: sudo /sbin/service snmpd restart
SuSE 10. i386
Download the tarball from Dell Support
Extract the tarball: tar xvzf OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-LX-XXX.tar.gz
Install the services: sudo sh linux/srvadmin-install.sh
Follow the prompts to install. I had an issue installing all so I just selected the necessary packages.
Restart snmpd: sudo /sbin/service snmpd restart
