Traffic flow between iLO and an external OneView repository

Hi all!

If we have a similar installation like this:

OneView appliance in USA

Server that reside in Europe

OneView Web repository in the same place as the server that will be updated in Europe.

Will the OneView only initiate the upgrade and tell iLO to start update from the OneVIew Web repository. The traffic with the SPP will be only between iLO and Web repository?

Is it possible to have multiple OneVIew external repository?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi!

Unfortunately that did not help. I have already read it.
My challange it that cust have one OneView in one place and multiple servers al over the world.
Is it possible to have have multiple external repositorys? It seems that it is possible.
In that case I can setup multiple external repositorys and trigger the update from the nearest repository.
Also the question about how the traffic flows is interesting here because the bandwidth is low to some places.
During the update will it only have traffic from the repository to the iLO5 in the server I want to update?

Hello,

 

Please find the below document.

https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=sd00001193en_us&page=s_about-fw-repositories.html

 

NOTE:

  • You can add only one external repository to the appliance.

Thanks.

You could implement DNS geo location resolution.  However, it will be up to you to ensure that the local repo is mirrored exactly, or you will have an issue with updating systems.  And you wouldn't be adding multiple repos to the appliance, just one, and let DNS resolution handle the local sites.  Do know that we haven't tested this, so if there are issues, you will face a support challange here.

@ChrisLynch 

Thanks for a good answer Chris.

Is there any documentation about DNS Geo location?
Is there only one Web-repository in the OneView in that case?


The problem I have is that all communication to the remote offices is from the headoffice. The remote offices can not communicate between each other only through the headoffice. The wan bandwitdh between headoffice and remote office is sometimes low.
There is only one OneView also.

If this does not work we have to implement some ilo-powershell script to mount SPP-iso locally.

You'd have to review that information with your DNS provider.  This is outside the scope of OneView.

Is there only one Web-repository in the OneView in that case?

Are you can only define a single external repo, yes.
