HP Proliant Gen 8 Microserver Problem

Hi we have a Proliant Gen 8 Microserver and as of yesterday we started having some problems with it:

- Fans started going crazy

- We cannot connect to the ILO - we get the following message: "Connection with iLO cannot be established. If you recently made changes to the network configurations, you may need to refresh this page to re-negotiate an SSL connection."

Our ILO version is

- The server is not outputting any video, so we can't get onto it to check errors.  We connected a monitor to it and nothing.

- We can however still access the server's drives.

Any advice please?


Re: HP Proliant Gen 8 Microserver Problem


i would suggest to try updating ILO fw to latest version from below link if ILO webpage is opening

Extract the firmware from the component.  This will place the firmware image file, iLO4_yyy.bin (where yyy represents the firmware version) in the target directory.  You now have these options:

  • Login to iLO 4, navigate to the Update Firmware page, and update the firmware from there.

if page is not opening then check by pinging the ILO IP address , 

if no response then reboot the node and check the status

in case does not fix the issue then please log a support ticket with HPE for further assistance
