NTP Time Sync Problem with BIOS J06 01/22/2018

HP Proliant Microserver Gen8

I upgraded from a 2015 BIOS (ROM) to J06 01/22/2018 two days ago (because of Meltdown und Spectre). Since then, iLO can't sync with NTP-Server (the server software can sync though).

I'm using iLO version 2.55 (since March 2).

Anybody else?

Re: NTP Time Sync Problem with BIOS J06 01/22/2018

Update: with iLO4 I toggled to the backup BIOS version J06 07/16/2015 and rebooted my Microserver Gen8.

iLO still shows the date of the BIOS (now 07/16/2015) as system date. So obviously BIOS J06 01/22/2018 was not the culprit but rather iLO4 version 2.55 - or SNTP-protocol is blocked along the way from the iLO Ethernet-port to the public NTP-service.

I'll try next reinstalling iLO4 version 2.50.

Refer to this advisory on how iLO gets time/date information.

try to manually adjust the BIOS time first, then try NTP.
NTP dont work if the gap is too big.

Hope this helps!
