Some of our Ilos are picking up dhcp ips and some areent.

Some can be contacted by hostname and some cannot.

Ideas?

I would allways prefer to have static IP for ILO..ILO is a component which can be used when server is  in-accessible remotely/hanged/stucked  and at that critical point I would not like that my ILO is on dynamic Addressing

sorry, forgot an important q.
can we use a tool or remotely change the ip address without going into the bios/rebooting it?

You would log into your server iLo via the current IP address/Hostname so as long as you have access to that network, locally or remotely, is all the same.

iLo changes reset the iLo configuration but it does not require or result in an entire Server reboot.

From the OS you can parse a config file to it using hponcfg command line configuration utility, and if it's Windows there's also a GUI iLO config utility. For blades you don't really need any of that since the OA can do it centrally.

If you've got a lot of non-blade servers I would use the GUI to set one up exactly as you want it, then export the settings into an xml file using hponfig, then edit this file for each individual server and use hponcfg again to push it back to the others.
