BL20p G3 ILO Issue

After installing two new BL20p G3 servers in a enhanced enclosure (with GbE2 interconnects) I've been unable to access the ILO ports.

To keep things simple I've been trying to get it to work on VLAN 1 but so far the ILO card does not seem to be getting an address via DHCP.

ILO Firmware: 1.75
GbE2 Interconnect Firmware: 2.2
Operating System: Windows 2003
Default Vlan: 1 (Vlan tagging is not in use at the moment.)

Both servers can DHCP without issue it's only the ILO cards that cannot. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: BL20p G3 ILO Issue

Since it's the enhanced enclosure, the ILOs don't run through the blade switches. They have their own little unmanaged switch/hub within the chassis.

Is the ILO port on the enclosure connected?

(Your mention of a VLAN suggested to me that you're trying to work through the blade switches.)

Re: BL20p G3 ILO Issue

Using the ILO port on the Enhanced encolsure backplane does indeed work. Using interconnect method as used in the older encolsures does not work anymore.
