    what does this file do from dell?

    This looks like a firmware file, which you will need to apply using the Dell Server Update utility or DVD.

    It is not possible to update firmware from the VMware ESXi console.

    You cannot update firmware from within the ESXi console.

    Dell Server Update Utility Download is Here

    You can also download the SBUU (System Build and Update Utility) and the SUU (Server Update Utility - all three images and merge) to update all system firmware at once.  Boot to SBUU, and choose to update firmware, then when prompted to enter Updates Repository, put in the SUU DVD.  They are large downloads, but it is the easiest and fastest way to update.
