The last time we discussed on how to access the HP iLO. But we need CLI commands for us to be able to further troubleshoot our hardware. Just like we did for Sun / Oracle ALOM – here are the commands that one can use for HP iLO.
There are times that we really rely on the manual (man) pages when it comes to getting the right options for a certain command under UNIX boxes.
