Ilo 2 reset issue

I am working on a ML310 G5 running windows 2k3. I am using the combined Ilo2/NIC set at 100Mb/s Full duplex. When I send a job from Altiris (6.9 SP2) that would normally reboot the server I loose connection to the server via Ilo2 remote console. The issue seems to happen when the PXE DHCP process starts. We need to have control of this process using the remote console. Is there a way to stay connected during this process? The Ilo2 is running firmware version 1.79.

Are You using the same interface to PXE boot ? Try using NIC2 for PXE boot.

Unfortunately, that will not work. We are a retail company with over 700 store and a server in each store. The extra wiring is just to cost prohibitive. Also, starting in Jan '10 HP will be shipping out the HP ML310 G5a. The new server dose not have a dedicated Ilo port only combo port.

Try the question on the iLO forum. Acartes may know a workaround.
