How did you install? Did you use the Dell yum repository?

1) Put a "set -x" at the top of the script to see where it is failing.

2) After you find out which binary is failing, it would probably be
helpful to modify the script to add 
    "strace -o /tmp/trace.log -f BINARY.."
to the beginning of the failing line. This will trace system calls. You
will probably see why it is failing near the end of the log. Usually it
is a missing file or directory.
