In order to install the dell management tools on this slightly older server running SBS2011 x64, it tells me I need to be running service pack 2.  Now I know there isn't a service pack 2 for SBS, but I think the underlying architecture is the same.  

This 2011 machine is our exchange server though, so I don't want to break that.

SBS 2011 is built on server 2008 R2, not server 2008. There is no SP2 for 2008 R2, so it sounds like you have Dell software for the wrong OS.

assuming you are referring to open manage, try this link
as mentioned, sounds like you have the wrong version
