Rack 7910 is not supported on Ubuntu.
Ubuntu catalog is supported only on some particular generation of servers.

Hope this clarifies.

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] Ubuntu dsu catalog doesn't work with rack 7910

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:
