port 1311is the default port for OpenManage Essential, correct ?
You should install the Dell customized version of ESXi on the Dell host which you can download from Dell directly (not VMware). It already includes all the management tools for their servers. IBM probably also has it's customized ESXi version.

The first question is did you install the OEM versions of ESXi from the vendors website....?e.g. download ESXi from Dell or IBM.

Also it depends on what management of RAID array you seek.

see my EE Article here for DELL.

HOW TO: Use Dell OpenManage Server Administrator to Create and Manage a Virtual Disk (RAID Array) on a Dell PowerEdge Server with VMware vSphere 5.0, ESXi 5.0 installed.
