c-Class OA & iLO Architecture

Hi All,

Was just wondering with the c-class enclosures whether the iLO for the blades is part of the underlying enclosure firmware, or whether each blade server has an iLO chip in it?

I thought it was all in the enclosure, but I've had a couple of things happen that is causing me to doubt myself.

Cheers

Re: c-Class OA & iLO Architecture

every blade has it's own ILO2 chip. Onboard Administrator communicates with those.

Thanks Jarkko K,

Not the answer I wanted to hear, but it does answer the questions that were coming up today :) (looks like I have a lot of servers to update firmware on!)

Cheers :)
