Blade 460c G6 not acquiring IP address

c7000 enclosure fully populated with BL460c G6 servers. All but 1 have acquired the iLO ip addresses via EBiPA. OA Firmware 3.21.
I have tried the blade in other slots and it does not acquire the ilo ip of that slot. I have also reapplied the ip adresses by enabling them. The problem appears to lie with the server.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Make sure the iLO on the server in question isn't set to use a static IP address. iLO needs to be in DHCP mode to get an address from EBIPA

That is a bit of a catch 22 as to confirm that setting I would need to access the iLO.
As these blades are all straight out of the box I would assume they are DHCP by default as the other 15 are ok.

Connect the frond I/O cable and check the ILO2 setting in the POST. Set to Factory Default setting and check?

If the ILO2 firmware is not the latest revision try applying the same.
