iLO Lights out firmware update info for you all

I thought you should be made aware of the below Lights-Out firmware update, which was released over the past few days. Some of the new features are listed below:

o Terminal Services operating seamlessly with remote console in a pass-through mode via the management port on Windows based servers
o evaluation license key for 30-day free evaluation of iLO Advanced features
o keyboard model setting to Global Settings page and XML interface
o capability to remote console hot key interface to specify key sequences Alt+SysRq and Right-Ctrl+ScrLk+ScrLk
o XML command to disable login requirement to enter iLO RBSU
o support of Sun JVM 1.4.2

The firmware is freely downloadable from
