detemine iLO from SNMP

Hi,
I'm using the HP DDM software and I need to determine whether there is an iLO behind an IP. I want to do this with SNMP but in some iLOs with Windows installed on their server the iLO and the windows server reports the same SNMP data. Is there a way to know whether the IP belongs to the iLO and not to the windows server?
Thanks.

Re: detemine iLO from SNMP

iLO doesn't have its own SNMP stack. What you are seeing is the result of "SNMP Passthrough" being enabled. If you disable it, you won't be able to snmpwalk the iLO because it doesn't have an SNMP stack.

iLO identification as done by HP SIM is through an http request in the form of http://[ILO_IP_OR_DNS]/xmldata?item=all and then the XML reply is parsed.

Download the "HP Directories Support for Management Processors" tool.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1121486&prodNameId=3288144&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-UNITY-I23896

Install and run the "Lights-Out Migration Utility". Search a subnet for your iLOs, and it will return all riloeII and iLOs in that subnet with the riloeII/iLO version numbers.
You don't have to use the other directory tools.
