I'm not positive but that might be referring to the ILO 2 device.

 

Make sure you're installing the latest ILO 2 "management interface driver" and "management controller driver".  For example:

Management Interface Driver

Management Controller Driver

 

Always make sure you visit the drivers/downloads page for your server... you can generally find what you need there.  The only exceptions would be trying to find drivers for a newer OS on older hardware (like Server 2012 R2 drivers for the DL380 G6).  But you can usually get the same thing by looking at the latest OS like Server 2012 or even Server 2008 R2 since the driver may be the same thing.

 

You might even find the drivers you need for a newer OS by looking at a different and newer server.  For example, the DL360/DL380 G5 servers also have ILO 2 but are no longer supported, so you can't find the Server 2012 drivers for it.  But since the G6 has ILO 2 you can find the Server 2012 drivers for the ILO 2 on that device page.

 

Just some helpful tips there.
