A quick update on the availability of OpenLMI:
I have tested Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, and OEL servers using the LMI CLI running on a Fedora system – the cross platform access works.
Fedora is the primary development platform for OpenLMI. OpenLMI support has been included in Fedora starting with Fedora 18. We strongly recommend using Fedora 20 or the upcoming Fedora 21 release when using Fedora with OpenLMI, as these include the latest versions of OpenLMI. Fedora includes all OpenLMI capabilities: the CIMOM, all Providers, the client tools and all client scripts.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux
RHEL 7 includes the OpenLMI CIMOM and Providers. RHEL 7 includes the client side infrastructure (LMIShell and the LMI CLI). Many of the client scripts are available through the EPEL repository.
CentOS 7 includes the OpenLMI CIMOM and Providers. CentOS 7 includes the client side infrastructure (LMIShell and the LMI CLI). Many of the client scripts are available through the EPEL repository.
Oracle Enterprise Linux
OEL 7 includes the OpenLMI CIMOM and Providers.
SLES 12 includes a subset of the OpenLMI Providers. SuSE uses the sfcb CIMOM instead of the OpenPegasus CIMOM used by default in the other distributions (both sfcb and OpenPegasus ship it all of these Linux distributions).
SLES 12 includes the following OpenLMI Providers:
The SLES 12 documentation notes that “Only reading of management information is supported for the ‘openlmi’ providers.”.
SLES 12 does not include the OpenLMI storage or network Providers; thus, you can not use OpenLMI to query or configure storage or networks on a SLES 12 system.
OpenLMI support is not currently available in Debian.
OpenLMI support is not currently available in Ubuntu.
