ILO - Server Name: host is unnamed?

Hello,

Where do I make the config change to have ILO have the server name for identification?

This is for Red Hat AS 4 servers.

Thanks

Eddie,
AFAIK, ILO name by default is "ILO".
You can change this name in ILO->Administration->Network settings->Advanced configuration parameters if you connect to ILO IP address with your web browser.
I think you can do this change if you press "F8" for ILO configuration during server boot as well.
Or by using "Mod_Network_Settings.xml" script

Hi,

I'm guess that you haven't installed any of the HP software under RedHat.

If you install the latest ProLiant Support Pack for RedHat, that should install the relevant software to enable ILO to pick up the hostname from the OS.

Cheers,

What happens if you put VMWare on the server, i didn't think there were any HP agents for VMWare.

Can it's name be set from VMWare?

Thanks
