config ILO on a DL 380 G6 Server

Last Modified: 2012-02-08
How do I configure the ILO options for an DL380 G6 Series Server ?

I see an icon show up during bios load for "Advanced ILO"
but I don't see the bios present an option for configuration menu.

You can use hponcfg.exe under the OS or as stated above set it up during POST. The icons that light up on the splash screen don't mean you have iLO Advanced Pack installed, they're just advertising, you can turn the useless unhelpful splash screen off in BIOS to make it easier to see what's happening during POST.

fluk3d: sorry I am at work and they have all the YouTube disabled at the firewall.

the space bar and 'F8' are really what I needed.

andyalder: did not find a hpconfig.exe, but I do have  c:\hp\hpsmh\bin ,but nothing in there wants to open. The webport back to localHost:2381 is not working either.

No such thing as "hpconfig", it's hponcfg - you've added a "c" where there isn't one. I forgive you though since this font is pants.

You added an "i" as well, sometimes copy/paste is easier than trying to read.
