We are looking at a more expensive quote for a Dell PowerEdge Server with the option of OpenManage software, and a quote at half the cost for a non OEM system from a VAR using a SuperMicro board and off-the-shelf parts. In addition to wanting a server with a lot of storage, we also want to remotely monitor the system's components, leading to OpenManage or a more generic IPMI option. I've had mostly exclusive experience with Dell OpenManage on Dell systems. What are your experiences with OM vs IPMI? Is it purely name and cost (Dell vs off-the-shelf), or is there more that I should know or be aware of? Thanks. Scott
