How to Connect to an ILO Port

Save

Establishing a connection to your HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) server allows you to use advanced features across your network. You can boot a remote server to a storage medium from any location within your network's range. After successfully connecting to your iLO's port, you can configure the server's settings in a way that suits your needs. Remember, your iLO runs its own operating system.

Things You'll Need

  • Wireless hub
  • Ethernet cables
  • Connect the first Ethernet cable into your iLO server's Main Network Inference Card (NIC) Port, which is located at the rear of the server. Insert the other end of this cable into your wireless hub's Ethernet 2 port, which is located at the rear of the hub.

  • Connect the second Ethernet cable into the server's iLO Port, which is located below the server's fan cover. Insert the other end of this cable into your wireless hub's Ethernet 1 port, which is located at the rear of the hub.

  • Plug the three-prong power adapter for both devices into the three-prong power port at the rear of your iLO server and wireless hub.

  • Insert the two-prong power cable into a wall socket, and then press the power switch inwards to turn on both devices.

  • Turn on the client computer to establish a connection to your network.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also set up a second wireless hub so the iLO connects to the hub directly instead of sharing a connection with the main NIC.
