I am trying to deploy HPhelion community edition on baremetal, is it mandatory to use HP servers or can be installed on dell machines too?

I have this question because it mentions create a csv file with list of servers with their ILOuser and password, which is specific to HP servers.

What OS is required by HPhelion community edition ? Does it require namespaces support ?

Yes, it can work on Dell hardware, but you may need to modify the install process to reflect the server management tools on non-HP platform. The baremetal.csv is used by the shell script at install, and you may need to modify this shell for your platform if it is not on HP's supported list.
