Upgrading servers from Integrated Lights-Out 2 (ILO2) to ILO3?

Waseem had an ILO upgrade question:




Hi All,



The customer infrastructure is G5 and G6 Blades and they want to upgrade from iLO2 to iLO3, can this be done? If yes How?






Chris replied:




Hello Waseem,

The ILO2 is built into the system board and cannot be upgraded to the ILO3, only upgrading the entire blade to a new G7 blade can you get the ILO3.




Embedded technology doesn't lend itself to upgrades very easily, if at all.
