HP iLO setup via ESXi CLI (SSH)

Last Modified: 2014-09-05
I am trying to configure iLO on HP hosts via ESXi CLI (SSH). I follow the instructions (http://www.vmwarearena.com/2013/11/how-to-configure-hp-ilo-from-esxi-host.html) and I can confirm that the configuration has been loaded (if I export the config i can see the IP/gateway/etc that I assigned). However I am unable to access the iLO IP (no PING, no web-browser access, nothing). Any ideas? We have HP DL360p Gen8 servers running ESXi 5.0. I am also having trouble changing the password. Thanks.
