Enabling console redirection with omconfig fails

Any idea why the following command would work but the next command would fail?

[root at server ~]# omconfig chassis biossetup attribute=serialcom setting=on
BIOS setup configured successfully. Change will take effect after the next reboot.

[root at server ~]# omconfig chassis biossetup attribute=serialcom
Error! BIOS setting failed.

I'm running this on a PowerEdge R610 that does have support for this (which I
can enable in the BIOS without issue).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
