Re: Changing Server Name In ILO

The iLo takes the configured Server Name from the host OS. You can not change it unless you change it in the OS (usually).

The iLo also has it's own hostname. Which of the 2 do you want to change?

Re: Changing Server Name In ILO

It was the server name with in ILO that i was looking to change but i think you have pretty much answered my question, so far as where ILO get the server name from.

Re: Changing Server Name In ILO

I am puzzled since in my case the server host name within ILO(not the ILO subsystem name)is totally different to the server Netbios name. Is there any way of changing the name elseware.

I have the same question, but I have a Linux OS on my DL 585. The iLO apparently doesn't know where to find the system's hostname to apply to the "Server Name".

My understanding is that information is given by HP Insight Management Agents, who interact with your Hardware-OS, so whatever name you give to the server in Windows you will get in the iLO.

This doesn't solve my problem, unless you're saying I have to load Windows on the system to give it its name and then rebuild the system with Linux.

Re: Changing Server Name In ILO

I too have the same issue. I HAD a windows OS on a ProLiant DL380 G4 and it is now a ESX 3.0 server. iLO reports the name of the old Windows OS. How is it that i can get that changed?

In my case in the ILO browser appears at the very top

Server Name: host is unnamed
iLO Name: servpesca2
Current User: Jose Maria Martin-Lunas

I don't know the way to cahnge the

Server Name: host is unnamed
to the correct server name

Re: Changing Server Name In ILO

Communication between the host and the iLO is accomplished via the iLO driver. Without that in place, there is no way for the host to tell iLO the hostname.
