How to turn on UID light?

I have looked everywhere, but cannot find out how to turn on the UID light when logged into the server remotely. I've read many posts where people say they have done it, but they never say how. I guess it can be done though HP System Management, but how?

I believe I did that under the system management homepage, tasks tab. may differ based on version of System Management Homepage.

Re: How to turn on UID light?

Ok, I checked both in the Tasks area and under System. I did not see an option for the UID light anywhere. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I am getting a timeout error when I load any page in System Management:

ERROR LOG (severity=2) Wed Sep 10 08:14:05 2008

Re: How to turn on UID light?

Is this some closely guarded secret? lol

I cannot figure this out. Everywhere I look leads to the idea that it can be done, but nobody every says exactly how. I know the light is there just for the purpose of remotely turning it on through software so that a technician can identify a server in a rack. I just want to know how to do it.

Re: How to turn on UID light?

Does this help? Under the Tasks tab is a box labeled 'System' which has the option 'Set Unit Identification LED state.' See attached screenshot.

Re: How to turn on UID light?

On the server I am looking at, I do not see that option under System in the Tasks tab. The only option there is "Cooling and Temperature - Thermal Degraded Action". I did log into another server that was recently put into service and it does have the UID light option. Could this be a problem with the HP System Management software? I will try reloading it and see what happens.

It all depends on the server.

But if you have a ProLiant HP iLO4

The pic might help.

Hello,

In the ILO Interface if you look in the bottom right hand corner of the screen you will see beside the power indicator a button that is the UID indicator that you can click to tuen it on and off.

This is with the ILO4 and lates FW but im sure from meeory tis always been there.

Hope this helps someone !
