The Dell System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) Catalogs automate the patch process of system updates for Dell servers and workstations in a Microsoft ConfigMgr or Microsoft System Center Essentials (SCE) environment. The catalog files contain detailed information to determine which updates are required for Dell servers and workstations, and how to apply them. It can be used in conjunction with the software update management functionality of Microsoft ConfigMgr (and update deployment process in SCE) to provide automated BIOS, firmware, driver, and Dell application updates.
README docs have been updated to reflect changes in Partner Developer Kit (PDK) catalog and also SCUP catalog. Please find the links related to README's in Quicklinks section.
NOTE: The Business Client Updates Catalog for SCUP is now called the Dell Command | Update Catalog and is a part of the Dell Client Command Suite. A new page has been created HERE

It appears you're now placing the Client catalog at ftp.dell.com/.../DellSDPCatalogPC.cab
Is this intended or is the FTP server folder structure messed up?
getting the following with the latest catalogue. does the file exist for anyone else?
ISA Server: extended error message :
200 Type set to I.
200 PORT command successful.
550 The system cannot find the file specified.
Why does the SCUP Catalogue have old bios updates?
Optiplex 755 SCUP is A12 but the latest Bios is A20
Optiplex 760 SCUP is A12 but the latest Bios is A13
most of the optiplex units are behind what the latest bios is.
It seems that DellSDPCatalog.cab & DellSDPCatalogPC.cab contains latest updates only.
Do you maintain archive of these cab file specific to older release (older version of updates)?

In all cases the Client Update Catalog is newer than the server update catalog. If the Clients and Servers need different Firmware versions each update should have a unique ID and different filters.
It might be to much to ask for but it would be nice to have catalogs for "Legacy" systems that have the latest updates for those legacy systems. Some organizations might still need to pull in those updates and publish them but they are not included in the current Dell Update Catalog.
Having a "Generation 9" and "Generation 8" catalog that could be imported would be great.
