Honestly I'd call Dell directly on this one. What did they say?

Are you sure they were purchased with the ERA/O(rac). On the 1750 it is not a built it option. To configure it during post it will start the controller and you'll need to press ctrl+d, this will bring you to the ERA options.

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

The port is built in but the ERA card has to be installed. Here's the part#(s) if you want to install them 6W963 and R0229 will also work. You can pick them up on ebay for $50.

If jamietoner brought up the correct point, you should accept his answer instead of close the question and refund.
