I have to do a task. Ensure that all our physical hosts have working remote consoles (iLO etc). They should have a standard user/password for all US/UK hosts and have DNS entries following hostname-mgmt. Could someone tell me how to do it. ILO i will login and check (guess right) but how to check DNS entries following hostname-mgmt.

I assume that you will need to check the Management IP Address, settings, and hostname of ESXi server - Management Network,

iLo will have a different IP Address to the Server, because iLo has a different MAC Address.
