You can apply for the license here: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/tryinsightcontrol/index.html
You then enter the key in the iLO console.

iLO is built in to the iLO interface on a HP server.
You need to ensure you have the iLO card connected and that it has been assigned an IP address.  The iLO IP address will be displayed on the screen at server boot.

You then connect to this IP address via https to get access to the iLO console.

all you need is the activation key
have you configured the ilo so you can connect to it? ip addy?
do you have the psp installed - you can config the ilo with an app installed with te psp, or you will have to connect to the ip addy on the tag of the system for ilo

you enter the eval product key once after you are connected to the ilo

yes we have configure and using iLO on maximum of our servers since last 1 years so there is no issue on iLO configurations and usage but with current configuration we are able to see POST screen only and once OS loaded the display got disappeared and says that we need advanced licensing for it.

Our procurement team is in touch with vendor for license purchase so here i just wanted to know where and how i will install that activation key.

iLO is physically installed but as you've noted without iLO advanced license you can't see anything in graphical mode or use virtual media. You license it through the non-licensed iLO interface.

Didn't know there was a 30 day trial license, looks like the one in the following thread will work though - http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1397288

Thanks for posting the link.  HP makes it VERY difficult to find by searching their site.
