System Information
        Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
        Product Name: PowerEdge R210
        Version: Not Specified
        Serial Number: DGWNTQ1
        UUID: 44454C4C-4700-1057-804E-C4C04F545131
        Wake-up Type: Power Switch
        SKU Number: Not Specified
        Family: Not Specified

If the Dell  "Product Name" (Hardware version) is "R210", then there is a known issue with USRM 1.7.2, 1.7.1-12, 1.7.1, and the Dell IPMI information (Intelligent Platform Management Interface). Basically, Dell changed the data order between the 860 and R210 servers. USRM 1.7.2, 1.7.1-12, 1.7.1 expects the data to be in the 860 order so when it gets the data in the R210 order, it incorrectly alarms. This has been fixed in USRM 1.7.3.
