ie8 crashing with remote console

we are finding that ie8 just goes to not responding when trying to do anything with our blade server ilo, v1.6, 1.70 & 1.77 it opens the window and then just goes to not responding, has anyone else seen this and if so do u have a fix for it, (it is happening on more than one pc on xp and vista)

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

Did you try removing IE8 and going back to IE7?

Did you try runnin IE8 in Compatibility mode?


IE8 has "issues" with many software and hardware web interfaces including the Array Configuration Utility.

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

it works fine in ie7, but this browser has been offically released my microsoft for months now and it should work on the latest ilo firmwares !

compatability modes makes zero difference

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

We work with IE8 (XP/Vista) and iLO (1.70, 1.77) - all works Ok

Nevertheless we have another problem with IE8 - when we open Virtual connect manager in IE8 - we cannot change server profiles, so we use IE7 and FireFox for this task

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

IE8 was officially released March 19th, 2009.

It hasn't even been 3 months yet. You make it sound like IE8 has been available for 6+ months and is the best Web Browser available.

Do you immediatelly install the latest available service pack to all of your windows hosts as soon as it becomes available?

Are you using the Integrated Console? or the Java Console on your blade server iLo's?

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

we use the integrated remote console option so we can then map the virtual media etc

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

and the beta came out almost 12 months ago so you would have hoped that hp would check it out compatability wise before the offical release came as its now pushed out to all machines via windows update as a security update

Re: ie8 crashing with remote console

the problem seems to be related to the google toolbar we have installed, once this is disabled then so far so good.
