Think of that management port as being an uplink from a network hub. It has no configuration--it's the iLOs on the blades that shouldbe configured.

If I consider this port as being an uplink, then the other ILO ports should be connected to this management module. Please explain it I couldn't get you.
We are upgrading the simple enclosure to enclosure with enhanced backplane component. The current ports of RJ-45 patch panel which are being used by ILO, Will these ports will continue to be used for ILO. if yes than what is the purpose of ILO single port on management module and how we will access it.

Re: Configuring ILO of p class server blade enclosure with enhanced component

Part of the reason to have the aggregated management port is that G3 and later BL20p servers have the ability to have 4 production NICs. That means an additional set of production ports through your pass-throughs in place of iLO.

Thanks for your information. This means that some new generation servers will utilize all four NIC's for network. And there ILO will be accessed through ILO port on management module.(correct me if I am wrong).

What i have understood is that only single cable will connecting the ILO port on management module. e.g. if we want to access any server ILO, through this port then we will give the ip of that particular server and this port on management module will automatically route us to that server. (correct me if i am wrong)

So there is no need of seperate ILO cable for each blade server.

Do you were able to access the enclousure console or only blades console?
I would like to access the blade console and also manage the enclousure (see what blades are connected, power options, etc).
Does that access by ILO port gives you that options? Even when you access it by one blade ILO?

Yes I was able to access the ILO of any server in the enclosure. ILO page also allows you te check the servers connected etc.But to see this rack view you must have updated ILO firmware version.

Is there a whitepaper on this or some kind of HP guide?
To be or not to be, that is the question.

Hi,
