I solved the problem myself.

The Dell readme for the 3.10 RAC formware release tells that a RAC reset
must be made. The readme claims that this is possible via the web
interface. I found not how the web interface could do it.

But the Poweredge::RAC perl moduls could do it,
by calling $server->rac_reset()

Now the sensors are back.
