Thanks Tim! What's the exact command again? I see the following on my system,:
smbios-get-ut-data smbios-rbu-bios-update smbios-sys-info-lite
smbios-lcd-brightness smbios-state-byte-ctl smbios-token-ctl
smbios-passwd smbios-sys-info smbios-upflag-ctl
Am I missing a Dell repo that needs to be installed!
I dried dmidecode but cannot figure out the exact setting line I need.

I wish! :) Is there Dell management lurking on the list?
