2. Why DSET has been replaced by SupportAssist Enterprise?

DSET worked fine for legacy generations of Dell PowerEdge (PE) servers. Current PE systems still support the usage of DSET, but they already provide alternative ways of receiving relevant system information, e.g. the SupportAssist Collection via iDRAC, which is independent from installed operating systems.

Note: Future generations of PowerEdge servers will not support DSET.

3. Which tool can I use for legacy PowerEdge systems that are not covered by SupportAssist Enterprise ?

Dell still provides Dell System E-Support Tool (DSET) version 2.2 for Windows and for Linux systems, which supports PowerEdge servers until 10th generation to generate a complete report about your system's configuration and logs, including the Server Event Log (SEL) and PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) log. DSET 2.2 can be used for systems, which do not have OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) or an integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) installed.
