ILO on DL180 G6

Hi
I have a new DL180 G6 Server. It has 2 NIC interfaces but no seperate interface for ILO. My distributer told me, that I can use on of the NIC interfaces. How can I configure it?

Best regards.

Re: ILO on DL180 G6

Your distributor told you wrong. There are two LAN ports for the server OS and an *optional* iLO LAN port.

See pages 129-131 of the service guide

Re: ILO on DL180 G6

hmm, it seems that it works.
take a look on this:

Selecting a shared Ethernet management port
c. On DL160 G6, DL160se G6, DL170h G6, DL180 G6, and SL160z G6, SL170z G6, or SL2x170z G6, set BMC NIC Allocation to Enabled.

Re: ILO on DL180 G6

and sorry for the I apologize for the confusion.
Yes on page 11... "You can configure LO100 LAN port access using two different Ethernet ports: the dedicated 10/100 LO100 management port or through a side-band connection using the server embedded NIC."

I guess the dedicated LO100 is needed if you need *both* embedded NICs for your server OS.

Thanks for the update.

Re: ILO on DL180 G6

the MACs of the built-in NICs are different (last letter is E and F), ILO (LO-100 in this case) has a dedicated LAN port, the third port.

Re: ILO on DL180 G6

Is it normal situation when BMC (shared with NIC1) stop working after power down?

Whether the Dedicated Management Port Card (HP SPN 516806-001) allows to control the server when it is switched off?
