I figured that you could answer this question much quicker than any of the people at Dell could. I'm getting a server, very, very soon, and I'd like to at least have the Dell Open Manage Server Administrator so that I can configure alerts for when I'm away at college or elsewhere, and so that I can manage low level settings without having to require sighted assistance to access the BIOS as I am visually impaired and require a screen reader that cannot access those low-level configurations. I know that all of the Dell Open Manage tools (SBUU, SUU, OMsA, OMNM) are available from the dell site free of charge. Yet on the customization page for the Dell PowerEdge T110 server, there are buttons that can be checked for open manage Subscriptions. You can get 12 editions, 8, 4, or 2, each varying in price. But what are those for if the utilities are provided free? If somebody skilled in Dell servers here could fill me in, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to be educated, making sure that I understand everything before I leap off the edge (no pun intended if you get what I mean).
