    Lights out driver is installed, but I have not configured anything.  I don't really have lights out so I just did the driver.  Do I need to config it anyway?  If so, how do I do that?

    It would help if the complete model of the server with specs so we can troubleshoot better. Lights Out is an add on card, I was just guessing you may have had one.

    It was actually the lights out card.  I re-installed the driver, and everything worked.
