dev/hpilo not present

Hi all,

Can someone help with this.

 

Server -> HP proliant DL380

OS -> RHEL 4

ILO card is working. But password is LOST.

 

I wanted  to reset it using the hponcfg utility.

 

-------

#hponcfg
HPONCFG RILOE II/iLO setup and configuration utility
Version 2.2 (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 2009
 
ERROR:  Could not find the iLO/RILOE-II Device Node.
        Please check if the iLO driver module is installed and running properly.
        ACTION REQUIRED: Install/Re-install hp Lights-Out driver package('hp-ilo' RPM) for iLO.

 

-----

I re-install the hp-ilo rpm... but error persists.

 

lspci shows the ilo card

01:04.0 System peripheral: Compaq Computer Corporation Integrated Lights Out Controller (rev 01)
01:04.2 System peripheral: Compaq Computer Corporation Integrated Lights Out  Processor (rev 01)

 

but

/dev/hpilo does not exist.

 

and a strace to hponcfg shows

open("/dev/hpilo/d0ccb0", O_RDWR|O_EXCL) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

 

Which could be the problem ?  What can i do ?

Re: dev/hpilo not present

after installng the .RPM, did you start the iLO channel driver?

 

/etc/init.d/hp-ilo status

 

if it's not running then;

 

/etc/init.d/hp-ilo start

Re: dev/hpilo not present

you might try this version, the instal notes state it should rebuild itself to work on the current kernel
