Acces SSH on ILO card HP Proliant DL380 G4

Hi,

I've some HP Proliant DL380 G4 server in my Datacenter. On wich of them I've an ILO card. I log in by the webaccess without problem.

But, when I try to connect it by ssh, I can't. It ask me the password, I give the same login/mdp used during web access; but I've this error message :

shell request failed on channel 0

Someone have an idea? Thanks for your help !

Romain (Sorry for my bad english...)

Re: Acces SSH on ILO card HP Proliant DL380 G4

What ssh client are you using? I haven't ran across the issue in a long time but some older versions of ssh under Linux had problems connecting to iLO.

If your using an older Linux ssh client try this

unset the LANG environment variable:
unset LANG

and disable agen forwarding:
ssh -a hostname-ilo

Re: Acces SSH on ILO card HP Proliant DL380 G4

I don't have a lenny system handy to test with. I don't see the issue with SLES10 or RHEL5, so I'd suspect the ssh client in lenny should be OK.

Try my suggestions anyway. What version of iLO firmware is on your DL380 G4?

Re: Acces SSH on ILO card HP Proliant DL380 G4

The version of ILO is 1.82. I want to upgrade the firware by the web interface, but I don't find the image.

Do you think an upgrade can resolve my problem?

Thanks,

Re: Acces SSH on ILO card HP Proliant DL380 G4

There were someupdates to fix ssh issues in later versions. This link is for v1.94 which is the last release for the 1st generation iLO.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=397634&swItem=MTX-67869b1e7b5a4e459885406e98&prodNameId=3288132&swEnvOID=2025&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0

Click obtain software, then right click on the .scexe file. Without the iLO channel driver loaded I'm not sure running "sh filename.scexe" will work on your system. You can unpack the .scexe file using "filename.scexe --unpack=/directory/name" This will unpack the ilo194.bin file which you can upload in the iLO web interface
