Working NIC shows "UNKNOWN" in ILO!!

Guys ! 

Server is DL380G9 

Both NIC Adapters are working fine - but are showing "UNKNOWN" in ILO console.   Attaching the relevant screenshot. 

What can be done in this case ? 

( The iLO Firmware is on 2.30 Aug 19 2015 )

Please suggest!!

If I were you I would seriously consider to upgrade your iLO4 2.30 Firmware to latest 2.40 release and see if the NIC(s) reporting fixes.

Re: Working NIC shows "UNKNOWN" in ILO!!

Oh yes, I am thinking of following these steps in sequence - 

1. Upgrade/Reinstall the following -

(Read it in one of the forums that this has fixed it for him ) 

HPE ProLiant Agentless Management Service for Windows X64 (American, International)

 http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=7271242&swItemId=MTX_47c59ba740eb4eb2aee3538e25&swEnvOid=4064

 

2.   Second step that can be tried if above doesn’t work is to upgrade ILO Firmware from 2.30 to 2.40

3.    Finally, you can suggest upgrading the SPP of the server depending on the OS compatibility. For Gen9, following is the latest SPP available –

 2016.04.0

 

Anything else I can try ?!!

I'll consider the iLO4 update the very first step do to since the latest 2.40 version fixed some issues NIC(s)-related (read the relevant Release Notes).

The solution is shown as a warning on the same screenshot you've posted.  Load the Agentless Management Service.

What do you mean AMS gone? did the service not restart after the reboot? Is there anything in the OS logs with error information with AMS?

Re: Working NIC shows "UNKNOWN" in ILO!!

We have an issue with 12 HP G9 Proliant servers with HPILO - 4

All 12 servers with same versions for firmware,drivers, etc. SPP runnig with SUSE LINUX 12 SP2.

all servers have the same configuration.

HP-AMS is not installed in any of the 12 servers.

Each server has two NIC Cards 

 - Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331i Adapter

- Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366T Adapter

All servers (even without HP-AMS) show the status of the ports in HP-ILO  for the NIC card  Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331i Adapter

Only 2 out of 12 servers show the status for both cards  Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331i Adapter and Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366T Adapter (without HP-AMS)

All servers have the latest SPP loaded, same firmware same card, same network configuration.

Why only two servers show status for all cards and the other 10 do not show the staust only the MAC Adress no status for Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366T Adapter?

We do not what we should do?
