I have a server with Integrated Lights-Out 2 Advanced for remote management. On the Dell machines I've used with DRAC it was easy to specify an IP that has a an email server on it so I could recieve alerts. I don't see this in the HP iLO. I see stuff for SNMP, if I need to use that, how? The server is running ESX.

Thanks. PA

The iLO management controller can't send e-mail directly itself. The intention is that one configures an SNMP monitoring service and then configures iLO to send SNMP traps to that which in turn can send emails.
