I can not say, I do not know this device and dell OEMs all of their
switch h/w, except perhaps white box h/w.  If the cli and config look
like another device type in rancid, then that type will likely work.
Else, perhaps show an example of the cli and config to the list.

smc would be my guess as well.  so, maybe show us the errors and try
the debug procedure from the FAQ S3 Q2.

If you discover one, please lmk and I will document it in rancid.types.base
along with the others.
