Is ILO configured and IP set on it?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can perform the update remotely, via SSH - but I would recommend this be done when you have physical access to the server, so this time, I think you will have to visit the server.
