Issue connecting to iLo using shared port

Hello everyone. I am having a strange issue that I cannot seem to figure out. I have worked with iLo before, but only on servers with a dedicated iLo port. I have two name servers running on a pair of HP DL320 G5p's. I am running Fedora 9 as my OS's. There is no dedicated iLo port on these servers. Instead, they are shared with the first NIC card. In this case, that would be ethernet 0.

I have configured iLo for both servers, but cannot access iLo via web browser. I cannot ping the addresses either. Does anyone have any ideas? The servers are running just fine and have internet connectivity. I just can't access or ping either iLo port for each server.

Hi,

Will you please send configuration on both interfaces? Are you using eth1 for internet anf eth0 for ILO? Are you trying to share the eth0 for b1th internet and ILO?

If you are using it in shared or on mode please make sure that your port is set correctly by rebooting the system and pressing F8 key to get into ILO menu and see that the NIC is set either "ON" or "SHARED" according to your configuration.

I am trying to share eth1 for both internet and iLo. I checked the iLo settings and the NIC is set to Shared.

As for the configuration on the interfaces, can you clarify what you mean?

iLo is set to Shared as it is the only setting, besides off, that I can choose from.

HP sent me a dedicated iLo port and now iLo works.
