Understanding Blade ILO Network Settings


Understanding Blade ILO Network Settings


Can someone please explain why each blade in my c7000 enclosure has an ILO network speed/duplex setting? Given that only the OA on the c7000 has a physical connection and individual blades don't have physical connections?

Because its the same firmware as the firmware in rackmount servers, where this setting is important.
Just ignore it.
As I understand it there is effectivly a network hub in the backplane. The OAs, interconnects and iLOs all connect to this "hub".
So any setting you make is between the iLO and the hub. As its set to run at the best speed - no need to change it.
