p-Class Blade Enclosure - BL25p - iLO

I've a "p-Class Blade Enclosure" with an enhanced backplan and 3 Bl25p blades installed.

I'm using an iLO connection to my blades to install my OS (VMware ESX).
BUT

It is only possbile to connect to 1 blade at a time via the iLO.
When I try to connect a second blade, "Page couldn't be displayed." and I ping "request timeout".

When I disconnect my blade, wait a couple of minutes, then I can connect another one... but only that one.

I've already changed the management module on the back of the blade enclosure, but the problem remain the same.

Where is the hub for the iLO ports located? Can this be changed or is it a complete new Blade Enclosure?

Re: p-Class Blade Enclosure - BL25p - iLO

Problem that you have more related to settings, firmware, your client system, network.

Less likely Hardware

Go to F8 on the every system and reset defaults
Than go trough Front dongle for each system and set Under Networking Settings IP for Standard Configuration Parameters
192.168.1.15 next 16, 17 (255.255.255.0) no gateway
Save allow count don't to finish and re-log console, after only disconnect cable
When all done with all three server pull every dongle from Front
Your Laptop connect directly to ILO port on the Management Module and try to log in one iLO to another from RACK VIEW "Launch ILO"
Firmware for Ilo recommended 1.75-1.84

Thx for the procedure!
All work fine, till I connect the iLO blade back to our network switch.
Then we've got the same issue as before.

So, the problem is not at the Blade Enclosure side, but at the Cisco Catalyst 3560.

Speed/Duplex settings of the port didn't solve the problem.

Very strange problem... some a sugestion?

Re: p-Class Blade Enclosure - BL25p - iLO

When you are connected to the front, you can give your iLO an IP address in the "administration" - "Network" tab.
There you can specify all needed network settings, like IP, DNS,...

So, iLO settings are specified on the blade. All the iLO ports are connected via an internal hub to the management console.

Hope this will help you.

The switches were the iLO's are connected to where blocking multiple MAC's on 1 port!

Disabling this security feature, solved our problem.
