VMware: Host Baseboard Management Controller status

January 3rd, 2012 9 comments

Last week I received some warnings at some HP Proliant DL380 G7’s, the warning message:

Host Baseboard Management Controller status


The HP branded VMware vSphere 5 installation (build 474610) detected that my colleague disconnected the UTP cable at the ILO interface.. okay.. good to know

If you don’t use ILO (not recommended) you can disable the ILO interface at the ILO bios

Global iLO 3 Settings:

Lights-Out Functionality                        [DISABLED]

iLO 3 ROM-Based Setup Utility              [DISABLED]

Require iLO 3 RBSU Login                     [DISABLED]

Show iLO 3 IP during POST                   [DISABLED]
