its active in the bios ive updated the driver and firmware but i cant connect to it by a browser.
when i try to connect by a command prompt it just gives errors

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

Hello Paul,

1.Does the Ilo get an Ip?
2.Are you able to ping the Ilo Ip?
3.What do you type in the browser to connect to the Ilo?

Incase 1,2 does'nt work assign ip manually and see if it works.

Minimum requirements
iLO has the following minimum requirements:
⠢ Windows® clients
â Windows® 2000/3
â Microsoft® Internet Explorer 6.0 with 128-bit encryption
â Javaâ ¢ 1.3.1 JVM or later
â ¢ Linux clients
â Red Hat 7.3
â Mozilla 1.60 or Firefox 1.0.2 with 128-bit encryption
â Javaâ ¢ 1.4.2 JVM or later

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

Check if you can ping the iLO IP address from client

To connect to iLO you can either use
1. Web browser
Type in "https:// in the list of browsers that Sandeep has suggested
2. ssh session (port 22)
ssh

Let us know what error you get.

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

hi guys

i looked at DHCP and 1 iLO was receiving an address.
but i couldnt ping it or connect via browser just got page could not be displayed.

So ive created annother reservation range in DHCP and will manually assign it an address from that set and get back to you.

sorry about the Atlantic its a time zone thing !

i have 3 such servers that are iLO compatable.
To clarify do i need a network cable from the iLO port in to my switch (i am under the impression the iLO port is only for configuration purposes)

and what sort of functionality will i get out of the basic iLO package as opposed to the advanced which i do not have a licence for.

Kind Regards

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

You can access Ilo once you connect a cable b/w the Ilo port and switch.
Ilo port is just a connector.

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

Try to disable proxy in your browser, or exclued the ilo ip address in the proxy settings.

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

dear all

Many thanks for your imput.

Can now ping and log on to my iLO via a browser!!

We dont have any server based proxy devices so thats cool.

Couple of points.
1 ive now started to get DNS errors as this server is also our primary DNS server.

I really also only need iLO for making a system shutdown or restart in the event of a hung server which of the power options will attempt a "Gracefull" or "Clean" shutdown.

thanks for all your help

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

What kind of DNS errors?
Since Ilo is configured now,use it based on your requirement.

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

Hi, all

My first bet is that you don't have the iLO Advanced Pack (activation key). Without this key you can only have limited functions and no Web Based Interface, you can only use CLI.

You should check if it is licensed since you've already checked all of the above recomendations.

Regards.

Re: Config iLO in DL380 g4

Without licensing iLO Advanced, you still have the ability to access iLO via browser or command-line and to initiate graceful OS shutdowns.

You will not have the ability for graphical remote console or virtual media as well as some other features that are listed.
