Remote Console is unavailable


I was trying to install a HP DL320 G2server which is located in remote end. When I access the remote console I am getting a message that" The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client.". I reset the network settings of the RILOE II to get rid of this message, But still I am getting the same message. I upgraded the firmware & still I am getting the same message. Rebooted the server several times!!!!. Please find the details of the RILOE II below.

Re: Remote Console is unavailable

I don't know about this version of iLO but, as your server is remote, are you going through a firewall that is doing NAT? Does the remote console work fine if you are on the same network as the RILOE?

There was discussion about this for iLO 2 just recently:
which may be relevant to you too.

Hi Simon,

This card belongs to RILOE II Family. The card is connected directly to the N/W, So there is not a Firewall in between.....

Were you ever able to find a resolution to this? I'm having the same issue and still searching. The network is actually NAT'd, but what difference would this make if I can login to access iLO, but not remote console?
Thanks for any information.

As an fyi to all, I was able to use the iLO "Acquire" feature to take over the unknown session.
