Re: Console Connection

There are 2 possible ways, the console can be either on serial line/MP or VGA.

Start EFI shell and run

Shell> conconfig

to see the current settings.

The EFI shell output goes to all possible devices.

You can reach the MP (if installed) by network (default is DHCP - see label) or serial null modem cable.

I guess the user guide has more information.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Please look at pages 1 & 2 of the link

ILO 2 MP LAN

By default, the iLO 2 MP LAN uses DHCP to retrieve a new LAN address for itself if the firmware version on the iLO 2 MP is E.03.15 or newer. When this occurs, the default hostname is set to â mpâ .

Access MP through the Web browser by entering â https://mp/â , or through telnet at hostname
â mpâ . For example, if the MAC address is 00306e22b403, you would enter the following
URL: https://mp00306e22b403/.
