Integrated Lights Out (iLO) version compatibility

Robert had an iLO version compatibility question:




As customers transition to the G7 blades, I need to know if there are any “interoperability” / “compatibility” issues with mixing iLO2 & iLO3 based servers in the same enclosure.

I know the answer should be “no issues”, but don’t want to make any assumptions !




Lauren answered:




You can mix iLO 2 and iLO 3 blade servers in the same enclosure provided that the OA version is > 3.11; otherwise, if it’s < 3.11 version the iLO 3 blade servers will not power up.
