Configuring the IP address

This step is necessary only if you are using a static IP address. When using dynamic IP addressing, your DHCP server will automatically assign an IP address for iLO 2. HP recommends using DNS or DHCP with iLO 2 to simplify installation
To configure a static IP address, use the iLO 2 RBSU with the following procedure to disable DNS and DHCP and configure the IP address and the subnet mask:

1. Restart or power up the server.
2. Press the F8 key when prompted during POST. The iLO 2 RBSU runs.
3. Select Network>DNS/DHCP, press the Enter key, and then select DHCP Enable. Press the spacebar to turn off DHCP. Be sure that DHCP Enable is set to Off, and save the changes.
4. Select Network>NIC>TCP/IP, press the Enter key, and enter the appropriate information in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway IP Address fields.
5. Save the changes.
6. Exit iLO 2 RBSU. The changes take effect when you exit iLO 2 RBSU.

Re: iLO first time install

Yes you can login through browser. The url will be "https://" . You will get a login screen with this. Login using the user name configured in iLO2 configuration step.
For different options available refer "using iLO2" section of the user guide.

Thanks for that, i did think that and tried putting the ip address in the browser. I think it might be a problem with the switch im plugged into. Its not setup for a VLAN so i will do this and try again. thanks for your help though.

yeah mark,
so better practice is to put all your iLO in Vlan and server in different network.
