Remote lights out board - 227251-021 - in Proliant DL385

Hi,

I am trying to get the Remote Lights out board 227251-021 to work in an HP Proliant DL385.

According to the slot matrix this card is supported in any slot on the HP Proliant DL385.

http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/riloe2/server-slot-matrix.html

How ever when I install it, and then power on the server, the server starts its power up sequence and gets to where it displays the full screen HP logo. The server then hangs. If I remove the card it operates normally. What could be causing this?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Regards
Andrew

Try installing the card in Slot 3 and check.

Slot 3 is the uppermost slot when viewed from the rear of the server.

Also,Ensure the server is having updated BIOS

Bear in mind there is an integrated iLO chip onboard of the DL385 which roughly does the same as RILOE-II card.

Any particular reason why you want to use RILOE-II instead of iLO?

I bet you need to disable iLO when RILOE-II is installed in a slot.
