Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi Nejad,

there are two ways to configure the ILO
1. Offline method
reboot the server and get into ILO Bios by pressing F8 during post. There you may configure the ILO including IP address.

2. Online Method
Use HP Lights-Out Configuration Utility (HPONCFG) to configure the ILO within windows 2008

Download the utility

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi All,

What is the recommended method to set ILO IP Console, using static IP or DHCP IP ?

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

You can go with static IP if you have small amount of servers.

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi Nejad,

It is totally dependant on your network environment. If you have DHCP server in the network and want all IP parameter to be managed by a centrally located DHCP then you use DHCP.

If you don't have dedicated DHCP server
or
you want to seperate ILO network from NIC network, you may choose static IP as metioned in the previous post.

Hope this helps,

Please don't forget to assign points if informatiion provided you think is useful... :)

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi All,

How i can know the ILO IP address when i using DHCP?

and i follow this instructions

1. Restart or power up the server.
2. Press the F8 key when prompted during POST. The iLO RBSU runs.
3. If prompted, enter a valid iLO user ID and password with the appropriate iLO privileges (Administer
User Accounts>Configure iLO Settings).
4. Make and save any necessary changes to the iLO configuration.
5. Exit iLO RBSU.

Thanks

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi Nejad,

You can find the ILO ip address in DHCP server by its Host name

by default ILO host name would be ILO plus the serial number of the server and same is also there on the tag which comes with the server.
e.g. ILO6J26JNT1706P

In worse case scenario, if you don't have any host set or you are remotely sitting or don't have ILO DNS name set

you can still find out the ILO ipaddress by running the nmap script
check this for details

Cheeers!

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Pinging 10.15.0.7 with 32 bytes of data:

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi Nejad,

If ILO and System from where you are pinging are part of the same sub-net then you should be able to ping the ILO IP and DNS name.

just check with peer to peer connection which is connecting ILO directly with laptop or desktop using cross over cable and setting up the IP in the same network. Now ping the IP and if u get reply then u need to check the configuration at switch/router end.

thanks,

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi, and very thanks for your support.

I want to upgrade all this firmware and drivers as listed below on my server before installing the OS to be compatible with redhat 5_86-64 because the OS available on server now is MSWS 2008 R2 ENT ED SP2 64 BIT.

» BIOS - System ROM
» Driver - Lights-Out Management
» Driver - Network
» Driver - Storage Controller
» Driver - System Management
» Firmware - DVD
» Firmware - Lights-Out Management
» Firmware - Network
» Firmware - Storage Controller
» Firmware - Storage Tape

And I installed the Firmware Maintenance CDs, which include the latest firmware packages for a lot of hardware.
Link:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=
en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=427542&prodNameId=3288091&swEn
vOID=4004&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-124beffbed3842cea0b9
b3f962

My questions

1- How I can know all old firmware version on server?

2- The Firmware Maintenance CD is it sufficient to upgrade all above list?

- If I need to use USB stick to offline upgrade what do you mean with â update command on step 5â ?

First, you use this tool to make the USB stick bootable:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swIte
m=MTX-UNITY-I23839〈=en&cc=us&idx=2&mode=4&


Once you've used this tool on your USB stick, the stick is bootable and ready to receive the firmware package (step 2 of the instructions of the storage controller firmware package).

Add the contents of the storage controller firmware package to the USB stick (step 3).

Then connect the USB stick to the server that needs the firmware upgrade, reboot the server, interrupt the boot sequence and change the BIOS settings to make the server boot from the USB stick (step 4, also described in the above-mentioned PDF).

step 5. Once you see the DOS command prompt
(gray text on black screen, typically "C:\>"), enter the update command (step 5).

Or tell me the best method to upgrade all firmware.

Thanks

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

1- How I can know all old firmware version on server?

Answer : while running firmware maintainenance CD/firmware DVD it will list existing firmware and available to update in HP SUM

2- The Firmware Maintenance CD is it sufficient to upgrade all above list?

Yes, this is more than sufficient. however, if u still want to check the list of firmware available, you can check available firmware in txt file.

3. Firmware DVD
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18964&prodSeriesId=1844067&prodNameId=1844068&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-98ce7a50a19a4d4994aaad8d0e

Firmware DVD is available on hp website in zip format
Contents of this ZIP file:

DVD ISO image
Readme.txt (list of all the firmware available in the CD)

ISO image that can be burnt into a DVD disk and can be used locally or remotely
or
ISO can be used remotely through ILO virtual media.
or
Another option is through USB key.
so many people don't have DVD Rom and want to use USB key, they can create bootable USB using the HP utility and put the firmware CD contents in the USB.

So it depends as which option is convinient to you.

refer to installation instructions for more help.

Hope this clarifies your doubts.

thanks,
Aftab

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi,

finally, What is the main difference between Firmware Maintenance CD and Firmware DVD? and What is the best for using among them?
And Both including all drivers and firmware.

Thanks

Re: ILO IP On DL320 G3

Hi Nejad,

Firmware Maintenance CD has been replaced by Firmware DVD. The new HP Firmware DVD ISO combines the features of the firmware maintainence and BladeSystem Online Firmware Bundles for Windows and Linux, so we have one firmware DVD which can be used on normal proliant as well as on blade system to update the firmware.

How to use it?
that depends on your feasibility. if you are onsite and got DVD rom drive in the server then burn the ISO into DVD and use it offline.

If you have ILO configured and Advance pack is activated, you can use ILO virtual media to directly use ISO without burning it to DVD.

If you do not either of above mentioned options, then prepare USB key for update.

Firmware maintenance DVD: The ProLiant Firmware Maintenance CD delivers a collection of firmware for your ProLiant servers and options.

It contains firmware only

For drivers update, you can download Proliant support pack from HP website driver and software page by selecting the particular product.

Hope this answers all your queries related to firmware and drivers... :)

Cheers!
Aftab
