DL160 G5 boots up with "BMC Restoring... Please Do Not Shutdown or PowerCycle system!"

DL160 G5 boots up with "BMC Restoring... Please Do Not Shutdown or PowerCycle system!"

Just bought this machine. Everything was running great until I sent it out to California to put in my rackspace. Now, when I reboot it, I get this message:

BMC restoring... Please Do Not Shutdown or PowerCycle system!

This goes on for about an hour then it starts booting. I did some research and it seems to relate to the ILO. I am not using this function so is there anyway to stop this from happening? I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Even if your not using this feature you should try to update ILO firmware and then clear CMOS information by removin' the CMOS battery, on reboot this issue should be resolved.

Hope you find this info useful.
