ILO Keyboard during Post

Hi There, I have a DL:360 G5 Server and when I connect to the ILO port I cannot use my keyboard during the Post screens. I cannot press F9 for setup or F8 for Array configuration. When the Server boots into Windows 2008 I can use the keyboard then.

If I plug a keyboard in physically then it works OK but that kinda of defeats the object. I've tried IE7 and 8 and have updated Server firware and ILO firmware and nothing seems to work.

Please help.

The iLO Remote Console window loses focus. Use your mouse to click inside the iLO Remote Console window immediately before the first keyboard press.
