Lost communicatino with ILO C3000 Enclouser, BL460c Blades

Hello, i've a C3000 Enclouser with 4 x BL460c Blade Server.

Since one week i've the Problem that all Servers turn red and the message: "lost communications with ilo" apears on the Onboard Administrator.

I already have updatet the Onboard Administrator Firmware. Also changed the full c3000 Enclouser include the onboard administrator and the all interfaces.

But the problems didn't desapear.

Does Someone had this error before?

Thanks
hfpinto

For me this problem was solved by updating the iLO firmware on the blades.

Hope this helps!

hi hfpinto,

Are the iLO processors set to use DHCP or static IPs? Have you enabled EBIPA from the OA?

Hi.
Doe's this happen intermittently?
If you remove and re-insert OA, does functionality return?

Ive seen this first hand. It is usually fixed by having OA on a seperate management VLAN.

Re: Lost communicatino with ILO C3000 Enclouser, BL460c Blades

Hi, Can you post what firmware versions you are running? I am currently also having this same issue on C3000 with BL460c. I am running ILO 1.79, OA 2.60, and VC-Enet 2.30.

I've spoken to HP support but it's round adn round. if I pull out OA then I get connection back for about 30 min. I am able to connect to ILO if I put in IP address in my browser; so looks like enclosure is loosing the IP.
