The dsu utility doesn't return any matches for rack 7910 servers when run
from Ubuntu 16.04. It works on RHEL/CentOS, and it even works on Ubuntu if
I fetch the catalog manually from ftp://ftp.dell.com/catalog/catalog.cab.
It appears that the ubuntu catalog is not in sync with other catalogs.
Currenlty, my dsu output on ubuntu wihout a catlog argument looks like:
