Re: how to start with ILO ?


you can start by rebooting your server
press F8 when integrated lights out comes up during POST and configure the IP settings and user

Re: how to start with ILO ?

If you have dhcp on your network, ilo tries to acquire an ip-adress from it.
from there it also tries to register witch dns and wins.

with them system with integrated management interface (ilo) there is tag with information about:
- default hostname (derved from mac-adress)
- username
- password
if the external tag is lost, there is a copy inside the system under the cover.

If you don't have dhcp, do as Karlo sugested to configure the ip-adress (and hostname) manually.

in your browser open http://
and fill in username and password.

After this add other users and change the default password.

For some ilo-functions you need to fill in a license key (ilo advanced pak ordered separately).
