ie8 crashing with remote console

we are finding that ie8 just goes to not responding when trying to do anything with our blade server ilo, v1.6, 1.70 & 1.77 it opens the window and then just goes to not responding, has anyone else seen this and if so do u have a fix for it, (it is happening on more than one pc on xp and vista)

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

Did you try removing IE8 and going back to IE7?

Did you try runnin IE8 in Compatibility mode?


IE8 has "issues" with many software and hardware web interfaces including the Array Configuration Utility.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

it works fine in ie7, but this browser has been offically released my microsoft for months now and it should work on the latest ilo firmwares !

compatability modes makes zero difference

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

We work with IE8 (XP/Vista) and iLO (1.70, 1.77) - all works Ok

Nevertheless we have another problem with IE8 - when we open Virtual connect manager in IE8 - we cannot change server profiles, so we use IE7 and FireFox for this task

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

IE8 was officially released March 19th, 2009.

It hasn't even been 3 months yet. You make it sound like IE8 has been available for 6+ months and is the best Web Browser available.

Do you immediatelly install the latest available service pack to all of your windows hosts as soon as it becomes available?

Are you using the Integrated Console? or the Java Console on your blade server iLo's?

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

we use the integrated remote console option so we can then map the virtual media etc

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

and the beta came out almost 12 months ago so you would have hoped that hp would check it out compatability wise before the offical release came as its now pushed out to all machines via windows update as a security update

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

the problem seems to be related to the google toolbar we have installed, once this is disabled then so far so good.

"one question what is your java version ?? "

Doesn't matter in this case since the problem was with activeX. (Integrated Console)

You can mount media for the java client. You need to log into the web management page for the ilo and than hit the media tab. Just a couple of extra steps.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

My IE8 also crashes all the time with integrated remote console, it is extremely frustrating. I find this usually happens when the server is rebooting, but this is not always the case.

Internet Explorer is and always has been a pile of garbage, it frustrates me that I cannot run integrated remote console using firefox.

But since I am stuck with it did anyone find a solution to this problem?

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

yes of course

but revert to IE7 after installing IE8 is impossible (or at least not easily)

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

I've got issues with IE8 on two different machines accessing OA & iLO.
I'm using a xw6000 with XP/IE8 if I'm in the OA and access an iLO link and I dont hear the floppy motor jerk I know ilO is working. The moment I hear the floppy motor .... that means I have to shutdown IE and restart it and try again.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

Regardless of the version of IE, iLO2 needs to work with more than one browser. Please extend support to firefox and any of the others in the mix.

I see the IE 8 bug too...

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

ILO on IE8 on Windows7 is even worse. In most cases ILO console does not survive server reboot.
I support the request for full featured Java-based console.
Let me know if there is workarounds for a console + virtual CD on Windows7.

P.S. ILO 1.78 Jun 10 2009 on BL460c.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

Same story here. IE8 on Windows 7 and on Windows 2003 is very frustrating!

9 out of the 10 times it will fail and hang IE8.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

I must demand that HP gives some info on why this is happening and why has this not been fixed. This issue has been lurking around for months and it is unacceptable that users have to stick with IE7 for normal access to OA

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

I am also experencing the same issue. IE8 drops into "Not Responding" 80% of the time when using the Integrated Remote Console feature of ILO 2. HP PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS WITH SOME ANSWERS!

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console


This Advisory suggests adding the iLO IP address to the "local" zone in IE8 security:

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

^^ This workaround from HP seems to have worked pretty good so far. I have had a few times where the integrated RC has hung, but nothing to what it used to be doing.

Thanks for the post!

With te ip adres added to the trusted sites now ilo remote console works fine with protected mode off in the trusted sites.

The workaround resolved the issue with my 32bit browser, by I still can't get IRC to work with IEx64.
