Dell SUU & OM

DELL SUU (if suulauncher.exe doesn’t work)

  • Launch Dell SUU in server core using command-line.  G:\IT\Dell Software Update Utility 6.3.0\suu -g
  • Proceed as usual


  • Unzip open manage into C:\OpenManage using  G:\IT\Dell OpenManage\OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-WIN-6.3.0-2075_A00.20.exe
  • Run the prereq checker in silent mode using command-line C:\OpenManage\windows\PreReqChecker>RunPreReqChecks.exe /s
  • Ensure that prereq returns to prompt without errors.
  • change to C:\OpenManage\windows\SystemsManagement and run the MSI in command-line C:\OpenManage\windows\SystemsManagement>msiexec /i SysMgmt.msi
  • Follow the installation prompts, use custom installation, install everything.

KMS OS Client Setup Keys

By default, the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems use KMS for activation. In volume installations, the setup key is installed by default, which makes the system a KMS client. If you are converting a computer from a KMS host, MAK, or retail edition of Windows to a KMS client, install the applicable setup key (GVLK) from Table 9 using slmgr /ipk <setup key>.
