Re: Ilo disable.

hi

Ok. did the integrated lights-out option appears in POST? if yes press F8 to get into ilo and configure it. I mean IP, users, passwords and so on.

on the other hand if ilo is not in POST it means is disabled, you will need to override the ilo security switch (which is in the SB)

Procedure:
- unplug power cable.
- look for the System Maintenance Switch
- the switch number 1 (ilo security switch) put it in ON position (check attached picture to locate System Maintenance Switch)
- plug server
- check POST and when Integrated lights-out appears press f8
- doing this ilo is not going to ask you for password (ilo security is disable)
- do the changes in the ilo interface(ip, users, ...)
- power off server
- put the switch number 1 in OFF position again.

doing this you can access your ilo via web browser where you will find more options to configure your ilo


I hope this can help you

Re: Ilo disable.

really sorry I dont understand very well

there are two server one boot is OK and the other one not. both ilo disabled? Am I OK?

it is the switch number 6 instead of 1 which is for ilo.

Procedure:
- Power off server, unplugg the power cable.
- Open the server.
- Look for System Maintenance Switch
- Switch number 6, put it ON position
- Power on the server.
- Leave it ON for 2 minutes
- Power off the server and unplug the power cable
- Put switch 6 in the OFF position again
- Power on the server again.

Re: Ilo disable.

I have a DL380 G4, I have no option on POST to enter f8. I upgrated the FW of the BIOS and iLO and now I have no prompt for ilo config. I updated using latest version and still nothing. iLO security switch procedure already done and the same. Someone with an idea...? Replace system board maybe?
Thanks

Re: Ilo disable.

hi Vinicio

Can you ping the IP for ilo? This in the case ilo was previously configured...

what do you see in management process system management homepage?

what about clear NVRAM?

Re: Ilo disable.

Hi,

If Karlo's suggestion don't solve it, try to
unplug the power cable, wait 1 min plug it again in and then power on the server ...this will completely reset the ilo and it must show up
