I have a HP ML370G5 with ILO (Integrated Lights Out) chip support.
My plan is to use a remote VPS start the server when required.
Have that server perform a task and reply to the original server which then sends an instruction for it to shutdown.
I am aware that Wake-On-Lan is not supported as it is inside a LAN and the IP of the Server is not actively broadcast when it is off.
That being said does ILO actually keep the IP live when the HP server is off, which works independent of traditional wake-on-lan functionality.
Can a standard ADSL modem play a role in this process?
Can this process be done direct or does HP need to plat a role in the boot process?
The proposed OS is SUSE Enterprise Linux.
