Using iLO from the console failing - proxy server is refusing connections

Tried some searches but wasn't finding anything.. Anyone ever see this error?

We are trying to use iLO from the console (via ESXi) directly, and getting the "The proxy server is refusing connections." error. Don't readily see anywhere that I can get to the firefox config settings. OneView version is HPOneView-NoSSH_2.00.02_219211, running on a standalone DL160 runing esxi6.0u2.

 

Thanks!

Re: Using iLO from the console failing - proxy server is refusing connections

Hello @hayner, and welcome to the HPE OneView Community Forums.

Unfortunately, you cannot use the console of the appliance to connect to remote devices, like the iLO Remote Console.  We also prohibit users from uploading and downloading files (i.e. Appliance Backup) from the console as well.  Is there a reason why you are trying to use the console to connect to the IRC of a managed server?

Chris-

 

Thanks for getting back to me. The idea here was to use the iLOs on a totally unrouted network along with OV, and the ESXi hosting server bridging. I believe that dual-homing the OV server is not supported so this was an idea for managing without having to be in the datacenter and physically connecting to the iLO switch.

How would you expect to recieve alerts if the HPE OneView appliance is on an unroutable network?  Conversely, why would you issolate your iLO's from the rest of your management environment?

Hey I'm not saying this is an ideal setup :) Unfortunately not my decision to make.

They are thinking of it as a security feature.. isolating the network-level access iLOs from production as if it were an offline serial connection. All the iLOs are on there and when they make changes they just jack into the switch directly.
