Re: NIC & ILO share

Hello there !(again!)

Which server are you referring to ?

U can use iLO SSH, BIOS or XML Scripts to get it done.

SSH and telnet used over the Shared Network Port. Both of these features can be enabled or disabled in iLO configuration,

Re: NIC & ILO share

Hello,

I'm from Bangalore ;-)

You did not mention the server model.

This can be achieved in the Following servers with Minimum iLO firmware version(beside)
DL320G3 1.64
DL360 G4 1.60
DL360 G4 1.64
DL380 G4 1.60
DL385 G1 1.64
DL580 G3 1.64
ML370 G4 1.60
ML570 G3 1.64

Only the iLO Shared Network Port or the iLO Dedicated Management NIC port can be used for iLO server management at one time. The iLO Shared Network Port and the iLO Dedicated Management NIC port cannot operate simultaneously. Enabling the dedicated iLO NIC disables the iLO Shared Network
Port, and enabling the iLO Shared Network Port disables the dedicated iLO NIC.
Disabling the Shared Network Port does not completely disable the system NIC. Regular network traffic still passes through the system NIC. When the Shared Network Port network traffic is disabled any traffic
going to or originating from iLO is not passed on to iLO through the shared Network Port because the port is no longer shared with iLO.

Regards,
James.

Re: NIC & ILO share

mmm

are you sure you have ilo 2?

I can see here Dl320 G3 only has ilo? not the second version

http://urlao.com/dl320q

dl320 G5 for example yes it has ilo 2 but DL320 G3 I dont think so
