Unable to fix bmc 601 error [ML150G6]

Hello All,

 

As the title suggest I have a BMC 601 error on my HP Proliant ML150G6, and I've been unable to fix it thus far.

A post suggested that I need to flash the lights out software to fix this, but I can't find anywhere to download this or how to flash it. I've inserted an ethernet jack in both the ports and I read somewhere I should set the IP to static in my bios > advanced > ipmi, but all ip related options there are greyed out.

I have installed an E5540 with 2x4GB and a 250GB harddisk with Windows Server 2008 R2.

I hope I haven't left out anything but feel free to ask otherwise.

Hi , 

 

you may try to reser the BMC Controller (iLO) using the BMC Reset/Recovery Jumpers, see Maintenance Guide:

Afterward, try to install the BMC Firmware, available here:

I tried it, but it says the hardware is not found. I've attached a screenshot.

But when I switch the jumper to recovery mode and try to install it looks like it works, says it could take up to 10 minutes and is done in a second.
