[Linux-PowerEdge] omreport throwing error ; non-root user

Having an issue on a Debian Wheezy box running 7.1.0.  With the root user,
'omreport' works fine:

~# omreport about

Product name : Server Administrator
Version      : 7.1.0
Copyright    : Copyright (C) Dell Inc. 1995-2012 All rights reserved.
Company      : Dell Inc.

However, a non-root user (e.g. for monitoring purposes):

#~ omreport about
Error! An internal error occured(6)

An strace shows it trying to setuid/gid along the way, but no files are
setuid/gid so not sure what is happening there..

[pid 11819] close(4)                    = 0
[pid 11819] setreuid(4294967295, 105)   = 0
[pid 11819] setregid(4294967295, 107)   = 0
[pid 11819] setregid(0, 0)              = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)
[pid 11819] write(2, "Error! An internal error occured"..., 35Error! An
internal error occured(6)) = 35

>From 'strings' of /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/omcliproxy, looks like the error
could be from (1) to (9) - I cannot locate any information as to what the
errors would reference.

I have the same package on several boxes that work fine as a non-root user.
