The only way Dell can FORCE you to update your license is if your
original purchase SAID you would maintain the subscriptions for a period
of time.

You should be able to check that and see.

Are the servers "bought" by you or "leased" by you?  If leased, they
might be able to dictate the OS as well.

If neither of those are the case (you are leasing or you agreed to
maintain the OS for a period of time) then you can do whatever you want
with the OS and Dell will provide hardware and not software support.
