Cannot connect to Blade iLO remote console.

Hi,

I did use the "remote console" several times succesfully from the "HP Administrator webpage" to a Blade 465c.

When I now try to connect, I get the message
"The Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client".

I don see an iLO event "Remote console session stopped by:" after my last "Remote console started by:" for my workstation.

The only event after the "Remote console started by:" is a "Browser login:" event from my workstation.

How can I find whom is still connected and force a disconnect?

Kind regards,
Erik.

Hello Erik,
A user with supervisory privileges configures the remote console session timeout for all users in Global Settings. The default, 15 minutes, may be configured up to 120 minutes.

Hence, If you cant access it now, Wait until it timeouts !

James.

Hi Erik,

If you want to force disconnect,
Login to Web-GUI of ILO.
Select Remote console TAB>
Select Settings.

There is a acquire option Enable the same.

When it is in use by others you can force a disconnect.

Hi both,

I managed to acquire the session that was still there. Many thanks!

Thanks Raghuarch! That just helped me with a similar situation. I killed the Console connection inadvertantly and it left the session hung on the iLO.
