Dell’s own website lists RHEL 7 as a supported operating system. We have PowerEdge 720xd servers that are supposed to be certified for use with RHEL7 according to: http://linux.dell.com/files/supportmatrix/RHEL_Support_Matrix.pdf

How is it we cannot get OMSA or driver/firmware packages for this OS?

Is there an official statement by Dell about this somewhere?
