How to configure HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO) Step by Step
The HP iLO 2 management processor provides multiple ways to configure,
update, operate, and manage servers remotely. The HP ProLiant Storage
Server comes preconfigured with iLO 2 default factory settings, including a
default user account and password. These settings can be found on the
iLO 2 Default Network Settings tag found on the front of the server.
If iLO 2 is connected to a network running DNS and DHCP, you can use it
immediately without changing any settings.
To quickly setup iLO 2 using the default settings for iLO 2 Standard and
iLO 2 Advanced features, follow the steps below
1- Ensure that a network cable is connected to the iLO 2 port (1) located on the back of the storage server.
2- If not using dynamic DHCP (IP addressing), you will need to input a
static IP address by using the direct attach method and the iLO 2 RBSU.
*During the POST press F8 when prompted to access the ILO configuration utility.
3- If desired, you can change the default user name and password on
the administrator account to your predefined selections.
5- Set up your user accounts, if using the local accounts feature.
6- Activate iLO 2 advanced features by entering a license key from the
included ProLiant Essentials Integrated Lights-Out 2 Advanced Pack.
7- Access the HP ProLiant Storage Server using the iLO 2 Remote Console
functionality. Log in to the HP ProLiant Server. The HP
ProLiant Storage Server Management console starts automatically.
