This happens when there is a pcie graphic card installed in the server. In that case the bios automatically sets it up as primary display but ILO has no idea how to talk to it (it knows intimate HP parts but no third party components). I have not dig further to find the bug listed on hp site but for me after entering bios and making the onboard video card ...

This is a blade server. Your power control is partially dictated by the chassis Onboard Administrator. You can disable automatic power-on for all blades with: SET SERVER POWERDELAY ALL NOPOWERON Or you can set this from the ILO web interface directly for an individual blade... Or you can set this in the BIOS. But really: You shouldn't be experiencing ...

I don't know. What the of rack is this? Why is it closed? Are there security concerns? Is the server the only device in the rack? More context is better than less... See: What to look for in a server rack? Don't be this guy: Server won't physically fit in rack: which technical problems will I face in future if I force the mount? I tell people ...

HP ProLiant server warranties follow the chassis. That covers everything inside the machine as long as you use HP parts!! So the wise thing to do with something like a G7 server in 2014 is: Keep the server's warranty active. Once you hit the 3 year factory warranty, you can buy additional 1 or 2-year Care Packs if you wish to keep things under support. ...

I am having the same issue. I am relatively certain that sensor 29 indicates the heat on the northbridge chip which is immediately behind the processors.

What OS are you running? Regardless of the OS, you should install the HP drivers and management agents appropriate for the OS. If using an unsupported OS, you may not be able to do this (but you should be using a supported OS) Fan speed and thermal monitoring is controlled by the ILO. Ensure that the ILO itself is up-to-date (version 2.02, as of this ...

Use a supported PCIe SSD. Your problem is likely due to the hardware not addressing the PCIe x2 interface correctly. To verify the situation, look in the Rom-Based Setup Utility (RBSU - press F9) bios screen and see if the card is detected. If it does show up, then your issue is at the OS level. Update your server firmware if you haven't already, just to ...

You're mixing 4k-sector (Advanced Format) disks and 512-byte drives in the same array. That's one consideration. WD Red and Black disk drives have different characteristics. What type of performance are you expecting? ESXi isn't compatible with software RAID, so are you comparing the right things? If you're comparing another OS to ESXi, that's not a valid ...

You could PXEboot or USB boot the systems into a thin linux image and use the hponcfg utility to set the ILO devices via XML config file. You could ask HP or your vendor to preset the ILOs. I offer that service to clients. Hire/contract a datacenter technician. If your systems are co-located, use Smart Hands services. You could enable DHCP (limit to a list ...

I had many HP Smart Array 6400/641/6i SCSI RAID controllers hang in a similar manner back in 2003-2006 with Red Hat/CentOS systems. You're losing the RAID controller and underlying storage system. I/O stalls and even console login fails because the OS can't read from disk. The networking stack is in memory, so the system responds to ping. Some of it's a ...
