upgrade all firmwares not only the ilo.
I've seen the same thing on an other server.

Thanks, wobbe.

Though I upgraded bios also, it did'nt help.
I thought upgrading other available firmware, (that was network and cd-rom) would'nt help.

so finally what helped - in bios advance - thermal options - optimal cooling
was set when I had problem with loud fans and since it seemed normal choise ( there are 2 choises "optimal cooling" and "increased cooling" it was last thing to try)

I selected increased cooling and THEN fan got quiet.
When I put back "optimal cooling", fans where loud again.

So I left it with "increased cooling" ( which meant fan's were on normal volume level) and went home.

Today morning , 12h later, put it back to "optimal cooling" and it's quiet now with that.
