How to get or set iLO details from Linux and Windows (when you lost iLO access)
I have access to Terminal session on the server but not through iLO. All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Honored Contributor. Else the another link for ilo must take you to the IP adress too. There is other option I think but will check it tomorrow and will post. Respected Contributor. Hi Zapata, Rebooting the box and go press F8 to go into the ilo config menu will get you that.
If rebooting is not an option and you know the subnet of the ilo, set your laptop to nic with an IP on that subnet and connect your laptop with a crossover cable to the iLo and then ping the broadcast address OR there is a tool that comes with newer iLos that you can connect to the ilo port and it temporary overwrites the settings of your ilo and you can access it with OR run a port scanner on the ilo subnet and check for port 80 ANDthe ilos run on both of those ports.
Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up. I have a microserver gen8, that i just changed its location, now it's not connecting automatically to the internet.
And to debug it i want to connect to ILO which is link up now but i don't remember the IP address nor i have a monitor nearby to connect it directly to the server. How can i get ILO address so i can connect to the server? Assuming your Linux system is functioning, you can install the iLO online configuration utility hponcfg. You can use it to get the iLO's configuration or reconfigure it.
The configuration is in XML format. You didn't mention which flavor of Linux you're using, but HPE makes hponcfg packages available for numerous distributions in their Software Delivery Repository.
They're set up as native repositories, so you can add them to your system and install or update them via yumapt-getetc. Alternatively, you can browse the top-level repository directory and download packages manually if you want to.
Yet another solution, that does not depend on having proprietary tools from HP installed on your system, is to use the vendor-neutral ipmi utilities. You can install the package called ipmitool on the linux system you have installed on your system it is found in the repositories of Debian, Ubuntu, Centos, Fedora, Redhat, Sign up to join this community.
I used this script in a previous job and it worked very well, finding ilos I didn't know existed. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

Is there a way to discover the iLO IP of the server from the network by looking at traffic? Joe W Joe W 1 1 silver badge 9 9 bronze badges. Are you sure that the iLO is actually connected to the network and configured?
If so, just do an nmap ping scan on the network, remove any addresses you know are assigned to other hosts, and then play whack-a-mole with the remaining addresses to see if one of them is the iLO card. Active Oldest Votes.

I never thought that it possible. I thought of giving details about the procedure to my blog readers and hence writing here. If you want the Unix based script straight away go to Nacho tech Blog.
You can continue here if you want to understand the logic behind the script. If a machine has ILO enabled, it listens on the port number Now you need to scan your network for list of machines which are listening on this port.
This is very cool utility with little bit of complex options J. Based on my assumption, you should run nmap from a host where broadcast is allowed to all your VLANS. Above process returns the list of hosts which are listening on given port. Using serial number you can easily find out the server name if you have proper inventory. You know? Use the below command for this purpose.
If you are a modern administrator and want to use powershell, the see my blog post. This completes the task. Happy Learning. This site rocks the Classic Responsive Skin for Thesis. Reply Link.

The latter assumes the two systems are in the same subnet, as MAC addresses are not visible through a router. Though you could of course check the ARP cache of the router.

How did you get the ilo prompt in the first place? It's configured with hostname. Ping is not working it's dropped. Exact tools would depend on the OS. If you have the hostname, you don't need ping just to resolve that name to an address. That always happens before ping packets are sent, anyway. Active Oldest Votes.
I'd use another approach - checking from the system you're connected on. Sorry I forgot to mention some details, question edited. You can still look up the IP address this way. I say Reinstate Monica Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook.
