It looks like Dell S3048-ON can use either the “old” Force10 FTOS(OS9) or Dell’s OS10 (aka (D)NOS10). As you are running the latter, the dnos10 type John mention should work. It is also based on a modified version of the f10rancid script. From a quick browse of the diff, I think they are pretty much doing the same thing. I’m using the dnos10 for our Dell S5296F-ON switches running OS10 (version 10.4.x)
