I've had that error before when I didn't run the tool as Administrator (shift + right click).

I vaguely remember either updating the .net version or installing the iLO Management Interface driver.

Perhaps the iLO controller isn't responding. If you can reboot the server into the iLO command line interface (if I remember correctly it is F8 when prompted before booting into Windows) and perform a controller reset.

The server is in different country so physical activity is difficult.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

What model of HP Server do you have?

Have you downloaded the latest ProLiant Support Pack for the server or updated the iLO software from the HP website?

Is the server up-to-date with ALL windows updates?

What is the OS on the server?

Thanks

Dear,
Please update ILO firmware and reset it.
If not then replace ILO card

Lets forget about the GUI for a moment (and with it any inherent per-requisites or limitations) and check whether you can access the iLO from the command line.

Can you install and run hponcfg? The command below will query the iLO and return basic configuration.

hponcfg /w config.xml

Open in new window


If the command line route doesn't work then it's safe to assume the iLO hardware is at fault and log a ticket with HP or arrange for remote hands to physically investigate the server.

I shutdown the computer. asked local team to remove all power cables, wait for few minutes, then Plug back Power cables.
Then once I am in the errors are gone.
The issue was due to the ILO management processor was busy. Even though you restart computer it wont reset ILO.

As the servers are remotely you can ask local team to remove power cables which will reset the ILO.
