change blade name in a c7000 enclosure?

Hey

I've been pouring through the OA web interface for over an hour now, and I can't find where I'm supposed to do this:

Management wants me to change the name of one of the blades in a c7000 enclosure. Can someone point me to the place where I'm supposed to do that?

Thanks for any hints/tips/suggestions.

Re: change blade name in a c7000 enclosure?

Hey;

To clarify this a bit: they want to update the name of the blade displayed in the onboard administrator.

Further research suggest that the OA gets that info from the host itself. The blade host in question is about to be rebuilt with the new host name and a new OS. Do I have to wait until that's done to reset the name as displayed in the OA?

Thanks for any hints/tips/suggestions.

Is it a Proliant Blade?.

1) Then login to ILO
2) Go to Administration TAB
3) Select Access under settings
4)Click on Options
there you find the server name. Change the server name and apply.

Hey;

Thanks for the reply. No, this is an integrity blade. I looked where you suggested and nothing. There's a login options tab, but nothing to change the hostname.

Thanks again; appreciate it.

For an ILO4 OA UI here's steps we've used

 

Goto Device Bay->Blade#->ILO->Web Administration

 

In the newly opened ILO Web Administration Window:

->Administration->Access Settings->Look for the "Server Name" field on the right side in the "Access Options" area

İLO-Web Administration-Administration-Access Settings

And right menu select Server Name and change

Apply .

Everything OK.

With iLO4, sometimes the name reverts back after a few minutes to the previous name, even after changing it in the iLO access settings screen.  If that happens, you will need to reboot the host and change the name in the BIOS.  Follow the instructions provided here: http://virtualcloudzz.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/how-to-assign-or-change-blade-name-in.html
