I have recently become responsible for a blade enclosure filled with BLC460c blades.
I have one which I am struggling to access via ilo 2. I need to rebuild this from an ISO image, which is how I discovered this problem.
When I bring up the remote console and power up the server, the display is corrupted and I'm not able to see the display properly.
This article seems close to my problem http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=397989&prodTypeId=18964&objectID=c03426343
although for me it's evenly spaced green bars all the way through the display.
I attempted a firmware upgrade as the above article says. The current version is 2.05. The latest 2.09. I am able to upload the firmware, I see it progress through flashing, and the ilo appears to reset. The firmware version stays the same and the log shows "Firmware upgrade via web page failed". I have also tried with the previous version, 2.07. The server has been pulled and reseated.
I suspect this might be a hardware issue, but I'm new to working with Proliant servers.
Any advice would be appreciated.
