I have just purchased (from eBay) a HP ProLiant DL360 rack server for use as an additional domain controller on our network.
I noticed that it has a label on it with iLO Default Network Settings such as:
- Server serial number
- DNS Name
I am presuming this information is used in conjunction with the iLO ethernet port on the back of the server.
Is there any way I can use this? I am asking because from what I have read iLO allows users to control/view the server screen even when it's booting. So I could remotely reboot etc. using iLO.
As the server was bought from eBay - it was completely blank when I received it. I have installed Server 2008 Standard Edition, but nothing to do with iLO.
So, can I use iLO? Do I need to install anything on the server to make it work and how do I access the server remotely (via VPN) to use iLO?
