iLO version reported incorrectly

Hi all,
I have a couple of servers which VCA is reporting the iLO version incorrectly. It affects all the software status in SIM.
The OS is win2003 SP2, the agents are 8.10 + latest updates, the iLO is 1.92, but reported as 1.15 in one and 1.91 in the second, both causing major status for the software column.
I tried to rename the Discovery folder of VCA + restart, it did not help.
Will be thankful for any ideas.

Re: iLO version reported incorrectly

If you have the Remote Insight Agent removed because you don't have a cable into the ILO, try re-enabling the Remote Insight Agent and then doing a software poll. You can disable the agent afterwards.

Re: iLO version reported incorrectly

It is a nice workaround.
However, it's a little more complicated.
The SMH shows that there is no management processor. There is no trouble to configure the iLO itself using the hponcfg util. The VCA states that the version is old. It has to be some kind of problem with the iLO drivers, which causes the SMH not to recognize that there is a iLO onboard.
Thanks,
Leonid.

Re: iLO version reported incorrectly

One more thing: one of the servers reports there is a management processor in WBEM "source data mode" only. In SNMP there is none.
The second one does not recognize the MP at all. I am referring to the SMH.
