HP BL20P question iLO

Hi all,

I have a question regarding blade server. We just got an old blade from our sister company, and would like to use it for our test environment.

I need to access the iLO of the blade, i have inserted network cable with dhcp on it, I know the IP, my questions would be the username and password, where do I get it?

Is it using the username/passwd of the blade on slot 1? If it is, then the default password has been changed, how can reset the password?

Regards,
Sandy

Re: HP BL20P question iLO

Pull the lid off.
Look on the lid for a label that showswhere the dip switch setting is for iLO Security Override.
Turn it on.
Put the blade back in and use "Administrator" for the user and anything for the password.
Change the password.
Turn the dip switch off
use the new password

First thing I ever did on a blade.

Hi Adrian,

I need to do this on Blade slot # 1 only? Or on every single blade on each slot?

Re: HP BL20P question iLO

Each blade's iLO is independent and each can have unique credentials.
