Setting up iLO 2

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.

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.

    You made the effort to blank out your servers serial number. But you forgot that the “iLO Name” contains the S/N too… (iLO2 Status Summary)
