Default Port for the remote console for iLO 3 remote console has changed - why?

A customer asked:

 

*****************

 

Hi Guys,

We have found that the remote console port defined for iLo3 has changed from being 3389 (standard RDP port) to 17990.

Can one of you please ask HP about the reasoning about this change and if it will be an issue if we change this to the standard 3389 port. The alternative is that we get NS to open the port 17990 on the firewall then we do not have to manually change every iLO 3 interface for servers in ecom.

I think they’re confusing 2 different things.  Port #3389 is a standard RDP port and was valid for the “iLO Terminal Services Pass-through” but never was the port for accessing the iLO remote console.  Since TS Pass-through is no longer available with iLO3, this doesn’t apply.
