DL380 Gen8 Ignores F5

We are running ESXi 6.5 on Proliant DL380 Gen8 system.

We need to get into the Smart Storage Administrator (SSA) to configure the storage array. We want to configure the spare drive.

During boot up, pressing F5 is ignored and the system boots to the OS.

Sometimes we would actually see that the system detects that F5 was pressed but the system will still boot up to the OS.

If we Press F10 to try and access SSA that way, the system will also just boot up to the OS.

Anyone see this issue before?

What can I do to resolve this issue?

Better check this:

If you have the NAND issue, Intelligent Provisioning does not work, hence you cannot start the SSA tools.


Hope this helps!
