Re: rename a lame

What do you mean with lame?
Rename what a blade is called under 'device bay' in the OA?
This you rename by going into BIOS of the server.
I believe it's called 'Asset Text' or something like that and in there you'll find the server name.

Hello

 

Yes i mean a device that i see under DEVICE BAY

 

I had a new server, and for me in the past i didn't go into the bios of the server, i modify the name in the hp bladesystem onboard, but where ?

Re: rename a lame

Maybe it's possible in the newer OA.
In our OA 2.60 you had to do it in the server BIOS.
Unless maybe there is a way to edit BIOS from when the server is running. Looked in ILO?

In the OA CLI guide I could not find a command to set the name of a server. There is only 'SHOW SERVER NAMES'.

Re: rename a lame

Hi,

It is fairly simple...

In the OA console go to the ILO section of the concerned blade.

Click on Web Administration.

The ILO pages open...

There click on Server Name and in the next page you can change the displayed server name...

 

 

Kr,

Bart

Re: rename a lame

There's no way, AFAIK, of renaming a blade from the OA. If you install Proliant Support Pack on the blade, the name in OA will be the hostname. Another option, as others said, is to fill out one or more Server Text lines on BIOS.

Re: rename a lame

Thanks for that Bart. Worked fine on our old OA/iLO firmware too. No need to reboot, just edit it and refresh the pages.

Re: rename a lame

You're welcome. Know that this is indeed overwritten when an operating system is installed... Then the OS name will be filled in.... But it can be changed afterwards again if wanted...

 

Just doublechecked it, it is the case on both ILO 2 and ILO3...

 

Kr,

Bart
