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]

Microsoft: Connection problems by opening iLO/iLO2 using Internet Explorer 8

November 17th, 2009 1 comment

Description:

When a remote connection is established with Integrated Lights-Out/Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO/iLO2) using Internet Explorer 8, the browser may stop responding due to Internet Explorer 8 security features. The issue occurs while connecting to the iLO webpage and starting IRC or another iLO/iLO2 remote console client.

Scope:

Any ProLiant server using Integrated Lights-Out/Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO/iLO2) and connecting to a Remote Client using Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.

Resolution:

As a workaround, the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name can be added to the Intranet Explorer 8 "Local Intranet" zone that lists Intranet websites.

Perform the following steps to add the DNS website name or IP address:

  1. In Internet Explorer 8 click on "Tools->Internet Options" and the Internet Options pop-up will be displayed.
  2. Click on the "Security" Tab.
  3. Select the "Local Intranet" icon and click on the "Sites" button to the right and the "Local Intranet" pop-up will be displayed.
  4. Click on "Advanced" and add the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name into the blank text box and add the website to the local Intranet zone.
  5. After adding the website, click on "Close" to save the website in the zone.

After adding the iLO/iLO2 IP address or DNS name in the Internet Explorer 8 local Intranet zone, all iLO/iLO2 clients will connect as expected.
