iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

I'm trying to setup the iLo on a DL320G5p running FreeBSD. I'd like to use the "Shared-network" option, which allows the iLo to be accessible over the hosts primary NIC.
Unfortunately, just after the kernel starts loading, the iLo stops responding - to pings, ssh. FreeBSD continues to boot normally. As soon as FreeBSD is shutdown, the iLo immediately begins responding again to pings & ssh.

Any ideas what's causing the shared-net iLo to freeze up, and what can be done to fix this behaviour?

Hi. Yes.

Re: iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

It sounds like an UMP firmware issue, not iLO.
You have the latest NIC / UMP firmware on that box, right?

Re: iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

You need to enable ASF feature on your bge(4) driver. This can be done by adding the following line to your /boot/loader.conf:

hw.bge.allow_asf=1

The ILO2 shared network feature should work after rebooting. You can setup a serial console afterwards.

For more information see the bge(4) manual page. ("man 4 bge")

To setup a serial console, refer to:

Hello,

 

I set hw.bge.allow_asf=1 in /boot/loader.conf but still can't use ilo.

# sysctl -a | grep bge.allow
hw.bge.allow_asf: 1


Switch see no mac adderess on port where connected NIC1.

 

# ifconfig -d
bge0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
options=1b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING>
 ether 00:22:64:xx:xx:xx
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
status: active

 

It's looks like IRQ conflict.

 

If I use "dhclient bge0", switch sad:

#show mac-address-table interface FastEthernet 1/0/45
Mac Address Table
-------------------------------------------

Vlan Mac Address Type Ports
---- ----------- -------- -----
XXX 0022.64xx.xxx DYNAMIC Fa1/0/45
Total Mac Addresses for this criterion: 1

 

How can I fix this problem?

Re: iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

What iLO2 firmware do you have?  Can you get into the iLO RBSU during POST? If so, check if iLO NIC is set to Shared.

Re: iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

iLO FW: 1.50

I think I can get access to iLO RBSU and NIC is shared.

 

Problem is solved. I use this script to find iLOs in subnet and find some IP address, try to get access and detect that iLo work!

But cisco still see no MAC address on port, where connected NIC1.

 

Thanks for support.

Re: iLo 2 stops responding when OS starts

Your iLO2 firmware version is very old.  Please consider upgrading it during your next maintenance window. We have fixed tons of issues since version 1.50. The latest iLO2 firmware version is 2.09 which is already available on FTP and it should hit the HP support website today or tomorrow.
