iLO OA problems

Does anyone know how to set the UID from the OA CLI. Bay 8?  It's grayed out in the Web interface and blinking indicating that there is something in use or other. I have a lost console session also out there which prevents me from opening one to this bay. Does anyone know how to reset remote console access?

Re: iLO OA problems

set server uid <bay> on

 

Where "<bay>" is a number.

 

Example:

 

enclosure> show server list

Bay iLO Name                      iLO IP Address  Status   Power   UID Partner
--- ----------------------------- --------------- -------- ------- --- -------
  1 iloec9a746a2718               10.1.26.50      OK       On      Off
  2 ilo3cd92b2f286c               10.1.26.51      OK       On      Off

Re: iLO OA problems

Some how I think I screwed something up with this box messing with the BIOS during boot. I reset something and now I cannot get the Remote Console to come up from the OA, it says its in use by another client, and accessing it via the Remote Serial Console does not give me a login but it does look like the system is booting to a certain point. Can't ping the box anymore on the net either. Can't boot with Virtual CD like I did three other boxes before to install linux 5.7.  The OA for this box shows Blinking blue light which states a critical operation is being performed so that is why it is an * listed instead of "On" listed.  From the OA under Virtual Devices:

 

UID Light: Use the button below to toggle the state of the server's UID Light. Note: When the UID Light is in a blink state, a critical operation is being performed on the server and should not be interrupted.

Does anyone know how to set the BIOS for a DL460c g6 so linux boots up properly?

Re: iLO OA problems

[ Edited ]

There is an undocumented nuclear option you could try:

 

enclosure> reset server <bay>

 

This is a full reset of the entire blade (including iLO), as if you pulled the blade from the enclosure and reinserted it.  If this doesn't get you back into the iLO, maybe a call to HP is in order.

Re: iLO OA problems

I believe the CLI reset worked. The light in the OA Virtual Devices for this bay  is Off and the Toggle On/OFF button is selectable now. Your CLI reset command must be deferrent than the OA reset button under Virtual Devices.

Now I just have to figure out why this one blade will not boot from the Virtual CD-ROM like it did for three other blades I just did.

 

Thanks
