I have trouble getting email alerts on one of the HP server DL380 Gen9 on windows server2012 R2 We dont have exchange Server in our Environment.

I tried enabling ILO AlertMail with my Email address enter image description here

Is there something wrong with my settings?

I didnt tried with SNMP Settings, do i need to configure SNMP first ? enter image description here

If yes please suggest me how do i configure just to get mail alerts on any Hardware Failure.

License Type iLO 4 Advanced

iLO Firmware Version 2.30 Aug 19 2015


I doubt that the ILO4 will relay to Gmail for you. It's a very simple mailer. Notice how there's no way to authenticate against Google/gmail.

If you want the full suite of HP alerts available, you should install and configure the HP SNMP agents on your Windows server and handle your SMTP auth/relay within the OS.

  • Then there is nothing we can do with ILO Alert Mail settings? :/ – Ranveer Mar 30 '16 at 10:55
  • Not without a server you don't have to authenticate against. – ewwhite Mar 30 '16 at 11:51
