First you need to provide the IP address for ilo.
Press the F8 key when prompted during POST. The iLO RBSU runs

You can also, try updatinig the firmware for the ilo.

First try downloading HP SIM to update all the drivers on your system.

Are you certain that this card is supported with this utility?
(I believe the ILO 100 series is 'special')

If it doesn't get an address using DHCP, you may need to reboot your server and enter its BIOs setup( press [F10] during POST)
and enter it there.

Have you verified that it hasn't retrieved a DHCP-assigned IP-address?
(Check the list of leases on the nearest DHCP-server for anything beginning with ILO... )

Have you installed the iLO Interface Management driver and the iLO Management Controller driver?

good luck, if you appreciate the answers we appreciate the points!

Re: how to set lo ip address using cli for hp dl 180 g6 having lights out 100

Hi,
thanks for the reply..we want to assign static ip to the lo100. We want to do it online (when it is live with os )and not while server boots.
hponcfg utility is there for online configuration of ilo2 on dl580 servers..like that is there any utility for lo100 for hp dl 180 g6servers for accessing lo100 through os directly to change configuration?
