DL380 and COM2 memory segment

I have a DL380 G3. It has one serial port which is listed as Com1. I have a service that has to be run on Com2 - IRQ3 and Memory segment 02F8. I can change this to Com2 and IRQ3, but I am unable to use the memory segment. The Motherboard is using that memory segment. Is ther ay way that i can assign another memory segment to the motherboard so I can free-up 02F8? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bill,

Check that it isn't the ILO's CLI feature which is polling the serial port.
