In trying to use this tar to deploy on a clean install of RHEL 5.7, I am getting the following when attempting to install the dell validated RPM.
root@server Dell-Oracle-Deployment-Lin-2011-11]# yum localinstall dell-oracle-utilities* --nogpgcheck

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
Apologies for the delayed response. I think this might be a side effect of some metadata populated from our build environment but we're not sure because we didn't encounter the issue you're seeing in our testing and validation of the release but myself and a team member are currently looking into the issue and will update as soon as possible.
Sorry for the trouble and thank you for the feedback,
Upon testing, it would appear that you just need to make sure and install the dell-validated rpm first and that will satisfy the dependency issue. I thought initially it might have been a metadata problem on our side so I wanted to verify that first but in our follow up testing we've found that as long as you install the dell-validated rpm first and then install the dell-oracle-utilities second it will successfully install. (Which is noted in the README file provided with the deployment TAR).
Thank you once again for your feedback and let me know if you have any other issues,
Under above tested and validated configurations, PowerVault MD36xxF is certified only for Oracle RDBMS/RAC 11gR2 Standard Edition only. Is there any additional info or compatibility regarding Oracle RDBMS/RAC 11gR2 Enterprise Edition & PowerVault MD36xxF?
