This isn't really related to OpenStack. You may want to ask this in a Dell forum for better help. I would definitely look at the capabilities of ipmitool and see if there are certain flags to use for Dell vs HP. Then verify network connectivity, can you connect to it from your desktop or a system that is supposed to have routes to get to
