Configure RHEL to set the hostname in the ilo and onboard administrator

Can someone help me to setup a blade with RHEL installed to set the hostname on the OA and the ilo on boot up?

 

I would like to configure similar to how the ESX servers do it.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Configure RHEL to set the hostname in the ilo and onboard administrator

Do you have the Proliant Support Pack (or at least the hp-health drivers) installed?

 

If your RHEL is older than 5.3, you should install the hp-ilo driver too: with RHEL 5.3 and newer, the hpilo driver module should be already included to the standard kernel, so there is no longer a requirement to install it as a separate package. (PSP 8.20 or later will know this and make the right installation choices automatically.)

Its RHEL 6.3 yet it still doesn't update the ilo with anything automatically.

 

How do i get it to do that?

Re: Configure RHEL to set the hostname in the ilo and onboard administrator

Hi,

 

The Server Host Name, Rack UID, and Bay are not user-configurable fields. The Server Host Name is set by the server OS, provided the OS supports that feature. The Asset Tag field can be configured by the user.

What is the server model?
