There are times that we need to do maintenance on a system and we need to connect to its hardware or system controller. With HP boxes they are called HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO).
Here are the steps to gain access to HP iLO thru Command Line Interface (CLI) via SSH:
roo@solaris# ssh Administrator@linux-mgmt Administrator@linux-mgmt's password: User:Administrator logged-in to linux-mgmt.corp.ads(18.104.22.168) iLO 2 Standard Blade Edition 2.00 at 11:16:29 Jun 21 2010 Server Name: linux Server Power: On </>hpiLO-> VSP Starting virtual serial port. Press 'ESC (' to return to the CLI Session. ^----- TAKE NOTE OF THE Escape Sequence </>hpiLO-> Virtual Serial Port active: IO=0x03F8 INT=4 You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root linux# </>hpiLO-> exit status=0 status_tag=COMMAND COMPLETED CLI session stopped Received disconnect from 22.214.171.124: 11: Client Disconnect roo@solaris#
See you on my next note!
