ProLiant DL380 G3 remote monitoring

Hello,

In some months we will start to move some ProLiant servers to new building so they will be a little bit far from us and we won't be able to check disks, power,... status.

Is there any way to monitor ProLiant HW status remotely through lan console like HP9000 servers?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Carles

Re: ProLiant DL380 G3 remote monitoring

Hello Carles,

The DL380G3 servers come with an embedded iLo port. What this enables you to do is have full funstionality, from a remote location.

You can do anything from checking the BIOS, rebooting the server, install files from floppy or cd located on your system etc..

Check out these links:

Thanks Chris!

It seems we have an ILO lisence so I'm going to install it in one server.

BTW, G2 ProLiant's haven't ILO port. Is there any way to perform tasks like remote reboot?

Re: ProLiant DL380 G3 remote monitoring

Hey Carles,

You can have the same functionality in almost any of our servers if not all. If it does not have an embedded iLo card, you can also get a PCI RILO board. Same thing, just in PCI card format.

Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition II - 227251-001

Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition - 157866-001

These 2 cards are for the DL380 G2, if you need them for any other servers, they should be the same card, but post back and i'll gladyly get them for you to be sure.

Chris

Re: ProLiant DL380 G3 remote monitoring

Make sure all your Proliant kit has the full support packs installed, this will give you a mini web server on each server that you can connect to, known as Insight Agents. Even better, install HP Systems Insight Manager on your network. Hey presto, a free management system. You can view all your Proliant servers at a glance and create alerts, you can click and connect to the servers own management, view errors etc.

Works a treat and it's all free. ILO's add themselves into SIM automatically and non ILO machines can still be connected to across the LAN.

Hope this helps.
