HP iLO Issue

I have a quick question:

We have a server that is located about 50 miles from us.  We need to be able to iLO into it, we can't.  When I SSH into the server, I don't see the HP Tools folder or anything.  Since we're so far away that it's a pain to get to the servers.  Is there a way to install it remotely or is this something where I need to plan a road trip?

Thanks in advance!

You can enable ILO when you startup the server with a key (I think F8)
Here you can set an ip address for the ILO card, en set an username and password.
You alse need the connect the ILO port to the switch of course.
ILO is completely seperated from the "normal" network.

When the configuration is good, you can access the console from the server with a webbrowser...

OK, so I was right.  I have to be physically in front of the server in order to do the initial config, huh?  I was afraid of that... *sigh*

OK!  Thank you!
