Dell DSET use Dell OpenManage Components to gather HardWare information. 
This will only work on Operating systems that support Dell OpenManage 
Server Administrator.

I assume you run an operating system that is not covered by the support 
contract you have with Dell?

Suggest that you boot a "supperted" OS via CD-Rom, Network or local 
harddrive to run DSET when/if support requires the log files.
