Hi Experts,
I would like to know if HP ProLiant with model such as the following model, any restriction if we can configure iLO port using 1G network instead of restricted to only 100Mbps?
HP ProLiant DL380 G6/G7/G8/G9
HP ProLiant DL580 G5/G7

If it's supported 1G network, could you please quote some source or references that say so?

Thanks!

Regards,
KH

DL380 Gen 8 and 9 have iLO4 which supports gigabit, the others have iLO3 or iLO2 which is 10/100.

https://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=3355757&docId=emr_na-c04726891&docLocale=en_US for the iLO 2 and 3 speed limit

http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03334051 for the iLO4, there are several references to it running at 1Gb although it may be limited to 100Mb when using shared network port and the server is powered off.

Hi Andyalder,
Does that meant that even I set 1G network for older model, it should be still functioning but just limited to 10/100mbps speed? I'm currently configure my ILO as 1G network, would like to see if any impact I.e. It's totally will not function or it still function but with slower speed instead.

You can't set 1Gb for the older models and if you set the switch to 1Gb you won't be able to connect.

Personally I don't see how the speed of the iLO's NIC matters. The amount of data is so low that you probably wouldn't notice the difference whether you used a 10bT connection and compared that to a 1000bT connection.

Depends whether you use virtual DVD to install an operating system, that takes ages over 100Mb.
