please run:

rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

and report the output.

Comment 2 Trevor Cooper 2010-07-01 18:12:17 UTC
[root@ip109 ~]# rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

... No output ...

[root@ip109 ~]# history | grep nodigest
   221  rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
   433  rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
   501  rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
   502  history | grep --nodigest
   503  history | grep nodigest

This had been run with no output BEFORE the bug report with no output. Same result now...

~~~~ Solution ~~~~

Solution was to uninstall packages that needed updates then reinstall 
entire Dell OMSA 6.2 package.

   456  yum update yum
   457  yum install yum-utils
   458  yum clean all
   459  yum update
   460  yum -v

... Bug Report Filed Here ...

   461  clear
   462  yum update
   463  wget -q -O - 
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.2/bootstrap.cgi | bash

... Same error as in bug report ...

   464  yum remove libsmbios python-smbios smbios-utils-bin 

... Successfully removed ...

   465  wget -q -O - 
http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.2/bootstrap.cgi | bash

... Successfully installed 'new' Dell OMSA repo ...

   466  yum install srvadmin-all
   467  yum install srvadmin-all --disablerepo=rpmforge

... Successfully installed 'new' Dell OMSA tools ...

   468  yum check-update

... No more updates ...

I can't really tell at this point. Any information on what was happening appears to now be gone.
