The mechanism for setting console redirection is different for various
Dell server architectures - the one you used is for older (x850 - 8th
gen) servers.  You will have better luck with the following (works on
x950 and Rx10 - 9th through 11th gen servers):

syscfg --serialcomm=com1cr #or com2cr if you want to use the iDRAC6/BMC
for console access

Your question was answered pretty well about three and a half years ago
