iLO2 Authentication Question

Jon had a customer query about iLO authentication:



Please can anyone help answer the following customer query regarding iLO Authentication:


  1. Is iLO Directory Services supported on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 – Active Directory? 

          a. If so is it supported on x64 platforms?

2.  Are there any special considerations for integrating the Onboard Administrator into Directory Services?

          a. Is this solely schema-less? Or are there MMC snap-ins and Schema Updates to allow  access control of Onboard Administrators?


Any help would be great.


Arnout had one answer:
