iLO4 v2.75 - Disabling 'Enable Active Health System Logging' reverts to enabled after iLO reboot.

Hello,
I have 2 DL380Gen8p's for my homelab and to save the iLO NAND from wear and tear I would like to disable 'Active Health System Logging'.

I did disable (on both servers) 'Active Health System Logging' but I do notice that after a 'reset' (reboot) of the iLO subsystem the 'Active Health System Logging' keeps enabling itself.
I also tried an 'Auxiliary Power-Cycle' (with RESTApi) but again, enabled after logging in.

I think this wasn't the case with an earlier firmware but I am too lazy to revert

Does anybody else with a Gen8/9 (both iLO4) with firmware v2.75 see this same behavior?

Arian!

Hello,

Why do you want to disable ahs logging'?

Re: iLO4 v2.75 - Disabling 'Enable Active Health System Logging' reverts to enabled after iLO reboot

Hello,

I want to disable ALH because of homelab usage / no more warranty. Also the history of wear and tear of the iLO NAND on earlier firmware versions I would prevent any further unneccessary write actions on the NAND.
Just to save iLO from dying on me

Fortunately iLO v2.76 doest the trick, ALH keeps being disabled after iLO reset / Server (aux) boot.
Ofcourse nothing mentioned of this in the release notes .. but ok .. i will forgive HPE.

Case solved!
