Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

Hi Guys,

 

I am trying to setup iLO on a Proliant DL380 G5. I can access the iLO via ip address and can see the web console. However, it appears I cant log in. Whatever combination of username/password I try it just refuses to login.

 

I am pretty much sure its because I dont know default username/password for iLO. I`ve got HP iLO configuration guide for this server but that says to use Administrator as username and any alphanumeric 8 character password as password. That doesnt work

 

can someone help me log into iLO please

 

many thanks

There should be a sticker or tag on the unit that shows the iLO MAC address and default Administrator password

Re: Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

Thanks. probably a stupid question, but is it different for every server?

 

Unfortunately, server is on client side and i am remotely trying to setup iLO. Will have to go there to get the password then :smileymad:

 

thanks

yes, the default password is different for every iLO. If you can access the host OS, you can load the appropriate iLO channel driver and the HPONCFG program which will allow you to configure iLO

i can currently access iLO web based console using server 2008 r2.

 

this server is not the same server. its another server on local lan that i am using for management.

Re: Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

to configure iLO using HPONCFG it has to be on the same system as the iLO

Re: Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

Okay..I`ve tried this

 

So when I run HPONCFG utility it gives me the error attached in the screen shot.

 

When I click continue, it goes ahead but doesnt saves changes. For example, if I click add user, put in details of new user and click apply. I get above mentioned error screen. Press continue, it wouldnt save the changes.

 

Do I need to make any configurations to make this work?

 

many thanks

Re: Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

Sorry, I haven't run across that error before. Are you sure the iLO driver is loaded?

Re: Cannot login to iLO - DL380 G5

It is indeed - yes.

 

but any how, its all good now. Luckily a colleague was dropping by client side, so i asked them to look for iLO password on physical server and relay it to me. All seems good now.

 

I signed up for 60 day trial license for iLO, in order to be able to configure remote power on / power off feature. I`ve received email from hp saying registeration is done and everything. Still cant see the license anywhere. 

 

Do you have any tips on that please?

 

many thanks

Log in to ILO, go to Administration - Licensing & that page should tell you what state the ILO is in with respect to type of license installed.
