Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

In the Onboard Administrator, where does the Device Bay name get pulled from??

We used to specify the name in the BIOS "Server Text" field but now it shows up as MININT JVC (from RDP). If we empty this field it just displays the model of the blade - ProLiant BL465c G1.

OA firmware - 2.01
iLo2 firmware - 1.35
O/S - ESX 3.0

The server text field used to work, something changed.

You already have the updated firmware.
Will research more on this.

Access the RBSU by pressing the F9 key during Power-On Self-Test (POST).
Select "Server Asset Text" hit enter
Select "Server Info Text" hit enter

Select "Server Name" Line #1 or Line #2. Each line can contain a maximum of 14 characters.
Enter the server blade name.

Re: Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

Ya nice Raghuarch, this is there in the link provided; But you missed the actual issue.
That has already been done !
Any new ideas ? I didnt find anything yet !
Odd... as the OA firmware 2.01 should have rectified the same.
Melissa, how many OA do you have in the same enclosure ?

Hi Melissa,

Try reseting the iLO if you have iLO access for the same server.

that should fix the problem.

Re: Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

There is only one OA is this enclosure, but it does happen to be linked to another enclosure (which has it's own OA).

I can try resetting the iLo - how do you recommend doing this? I know it can be done through DIP switches on the blade but i'm sure there's another less drastic way I don't know of. :)

Re: Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

Hi Melissa,

login to iLO of the server from the OA web link.
in iLO screen select Diagnostics in the left pane.
In the bottom of the same page there is a option to reset iLO.

refer to the attachment.

Re: Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

Raghuarch, it worked!!! How excellent!

OK so now my question. How exactly is that bios asset tag entry tied to iLo2?

Re: Device Bay name incorrect in Onboard Administrator

Some times the OA fails to recognize the change in server.
This may be due to improper communication between ILO and OA.

When the iLO is reset it will start communicating with OA.

don't forget to assign points.
