Thanks guys for your time.

I have latest version of kernel and kernel-devel
(kernel-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64 and kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64)
but i believe ofed installer was looking for base version of kernel and
kernel-devel (2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64)

root_at_scc-10-2-xx-xx:/opt/OFED-1.5.3.2# *rpm -qa | grep "kernel"*
kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64
kernel-firmware-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.noarch
dracut-kernel-004-303.el6.noarch
kernel-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64
kernel-headers-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64
kernel-2.6.32-358.14.1.el6.x86_64
kernel-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64

In order to take care of this error
"/lib/modules/2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64/build/scripts
is required to build kernel-ib RPM."

I had to rollback to "kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64.rpm"

 *rpm -Uvh --oldpackage kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64.rpm*
