ILO to Securely DDNS (for new servers being built)

Hi Dear Forum Members,

I reached the point where I need your assistance. We were thinking to remove WINS setting from ILO and replace with Secure DDNS.

1. I read on other threads that ILO is cabaple of Dynamic DNS Updates, but I could not find a HP article\manual describing the process, appreciate if you have the link/pdf handy.

2. We actually need ILO IP Addresses to be Securely updated in Active Directory DNS zone when a new server is built. Is that possible by any method? (e.g. via API reading from ILO then contacting DNS Server, scripting, etc).

3. If there is no way ILO could Securely DDNS, is there a HP article/manual confirming that?

Thank you very much for your time,
Ovi

iLO and iLO 2 do not currently have support for secure dynamic DNS update.

You could create a DNS record for the iLOs and then push the DNS name into the iLOs using their scripting capability. This, of course, has nothing dynamic about it :)
