Screenshot shows you have a 4+ years old iLO2 firmware version.
I would upgrade the iLO2 firmware to 2.05 first then, I would reset iLO2 to factory defaults by either using HPONCFG from the OS or from the iLO2 RBSU (pressing F8 during POST)

"Invalid Directory Server address or port"
Reason: The specified Directory Server address was empty, or the port number was set to 0. Specify the correct server address or port.

From the iLO2 Administration Tab, check the Directory Settings.
Enter a valid "Directory Server Address" default is
This parameter specifies the Directory Server DNS name or IP address. HP recommends using a DNS name or multi-host DNS name. If an IP address is used, the directory will not be available if that server is down.

Enter a valid "Directory Server LDAP Port" default is 636
This option sets the port number used to connect to the directory server. The SSL-secured LDAP port number is 636.

Hope this helps you fix the issue.
