We have just received our Proliant DL380 G7 server and while going through the user guide for it, specifically for iLo configuration, the guide describes configuration for iLo2, but when I log in through the web interface to the iLo console it logs me in to iLo3 Standard. But because I needed the iLo console right away I downloaded the trial iLO3 Advanced license and when received the .doc document with the license number the document states:
"NOTE: Integrated Lights-Out (iLO 2) Advanced software is pre-installed on ProLiant 300 & 500 series servers and advanced features are activated with the above license key."
So, now, is it possible to use the iLo2(if advanced is preinstalled on this server at all?) on our server, or will we have to purchase the iLo3 Advanced license?

What guide were you looking through?
If you look in the quickspecs of DL380 G7 and G5.
You'll see that 512485-B21 is available for both the G7 and G5. Based on that I'd say that the license should work on ILO3.

I think he got confused
All G7 servers will have iLO3, you cannot have iLO2 on it.
Now regarding the comment "NOTE: Integrated Lights-Out (iLO 2) Advanced software is pre-installed on ProLiant 300 & 500 series servers and advanced features are activated with the above license key"
You are right, its Pre-installed but not activated. Once you buy/enter license it will get activated and you can use it.
Hope this will help you :)

No he's not confused, just badly written.
The issue is the same I am having, I have a G7 model, and for some stupid reason the major Australian HP Distributor are not able to supply a ILO license key (paid for), waiting for stock. Wonder how long it takes to manufacture a key...???
So in the interim, I thought it would quick to install a trial key, so went to the HP ILO 3 webpage, clicked the correct links for the trial.
It provides a document with the trial licence key like so
Integrated Lights-Out Advanced - Evaluation License
License key: 3323L-4434X-X232C-23426-8W233 (its not the one I have...doctored for posting)
Number of licenses: 10
Duration: 60 days
NOTE: Integrated Lights-Out (iLO 2) Advanced software is pre-installed on ProLiant 300 & 500 series servers and advanced features are activated with the above license key.
So what the original poster should have said, is that he tried the License key and it came back as Invalid, and the last sentence in the document is what he hung his hat on, thinking that he has been provided a ILO 2 license. And to be fair to the original poster, with no other versioning numbers on the document, reading that line, you would assume that it was a iLO 2 license....
Poorly thought out and executed by HP. Produce a well engineered product, but fail on the "extras".

> press at POST F8 and then go into iLO and file > factory reset; then apply again the license via the GUI.
