Introduction
Overview
HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator is the enclosure management processor, subsystem, and firmware base used to support the HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure and all the managed devices contained within the enclosure. Onboard Administrator provides a single point from which to perform basic management tasks on server blades or switches within the enclosure. Onboard Administrator performs configuration steps for the enclosure, enables run-time management and configuration of the enclosure components, and informs you of problems within the enclosure through email, SNMP, or the Insight Display. HP recommends that you read the specific HP BladeSystem c3000 or c7000 Enclosure User Guide for enclosure specific information before proceeding with Onboard Administrator setup. This user guide provides information on the initial setup and operation of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator, and it also covers use of the Onboard Administrator GUI and the use of the enclosure Insight Display. The Onboard Administrator CLI Guide covers the use of the CLI. The HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator provides several features designed to simplify management of c-Class blades and interconnects. The BladeSystem c7000 enclosure can be configured with redundant Onboard Administrator modules to provide uninterrupted manageability of the entire enclosure and blades in the event of a failure of a single Onboard Administrator module. The following table indicates which Onboard Administrator feature is enhanced when the enclosure contains redundant Onboard Administrator modules. For an enclosure with only a single Onboard Administrator module, the table indicates the behavior of the enclosure if the single Onboard Administrator module has failed or is removed. Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, introduced in Onboard Administrator firmware version 2.31, is only available in HP BladeSystem enclosures with redundant Onboard Administrator modules installed. Benefits of using a redundant Onboard Administrator versus a single Onboard Administrator Onboard Administrator feature
Power allocation and control for all blades and interconnects

Single Onboard Single Onboard Administrator in enclosure Administrator failed or removed
Yes. No enclosure dynamic power capping as this requires redundant Onboard Administrators. No. Power supplies will continue to deliver power to all blades and interconnects. No power on requests can be made for blades or interconnects. No. All enclosure fans will ramp to an un-managed higher speed to protect blades and interconnects from overheating.

Redundant Onboard Administrator in enclosure
Yes. Complete control including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator. Enclosure dynamic power capping requires redundant Onboard Administrators. Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator.

Cooling for all blades and interconnects.

Yes. Complete control.

Introduction

Yes. Complete control.

No. EBIPA IP addresses will be lost after lease timeout.

Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator. Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator.

Yes. Complete control. Ethernet communications to Onboard Administrator, server iLO 2, interconnect management processors such as Virtual Connect which use the Onboard Administrator/iLO management port Information and health status reporting for all blades, interconnects, fans, power supplies, Onboard Administrators, and enclosure through Onboard Administrator's GUI or CLI, alert mail, or SNMP Insight Display Yes. Complete control.

No Ethernet management communications including internal management traffic such as Virtual Connect Manager to other VC modules in the enclosure.

No information is available from the Onboard Administrator nor is any outof-band information available from VCM or iLO 2 on any server.

Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator.

Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator. Yes. Complete control, including sustaining a failure of either Onboard Administrator. Yes. Complete control. For the HP c3000 Enclosure, requires both c3000 KVM option and redundant Onboard Administrator option. For the HP c7000 Enclosure, requires two of the newer Onboard Administrator modules with VGA connector.

Enclosure DVD (requires either c3000 DVD option, external USB DVD drive, or USB key)

Yes. Complete control.

No.

Yes. Complete control. Enclosure KVM (requires c3000 KVM option or Onboard Administrator module with VGA connector)

No.

Onboard Administrator module replacement and stored settings When replacing an Onboard Administrator or if a failure occurs when using redundant Onboard Administrators:

Removing an Onboard Administrator module in a c7000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrator modules installed results in the other Onboard Administrator module immediately becoming the Active Onboard Administrator if it was the Standby Onboard Administrator with only loss of the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings. If Onboard Administrator firmware versions are identical, manually update the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings using the Insight Display and then the replaced Onboard Administrator module will then be synchronized on all enclosure settings by the active Onboard Administrator.

Introduction

9

If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

Removing an OA1 module in a c3000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrators installed results in the OA2 module becoming the Active Onboard Administrator if it was the Standby Onboard Administrator with only the loss of network settings on OA1. Manually update the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings using the Insight Display, GUI or CLI. If the firmware versions are identical, the replaced Onboard Administrator is synchronized by all enclosure settings by the Active Onboard Administrator. If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

Removing an OA2 module in a c3000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrators installed requires removing the entire OA tray with both OA modules, removing OA1 module from the OA Tray, and plugging this OA1 module in the new OA tray which contains OA2 and then inserting the OA Tray with OA1installed into the c3000 enclosure with only the loss of network settings on OA2. Manually update the OA2 network settings using the Insight Display, GUI or CLI. If the firmware versions are not identical, the replaced Onboard Administrator module is synchronized on all enclosure settings by the Active Onboard Administrator. OA1 powers up as the Active OA and check the firmware version of the replaced OA2. If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

What's new
The following new features and hardware are supported starting with Onboard Administrator firmware version 2.41: New support Support for new c-Class hardware devices including:

Onboard Administrator directly reads the FRU EEPROMs. For devices such as fans.

the progress appears in steps on the Insight Display. server name. Onboard Administrator communicates with iLO 2 to control servers. Onboard Administrator provides easy-to-understand port mapping information for each server blade and interconnect module in the enclosure. dedicated serial consoles.• The server blades contain several FRU EEPROMs: one on the server board. which is an RJ-45 jack providing Ethernet communications not only to Onboard Administrator. and management Ethernet connections. The primary external management interface is the management port for Onboard Administrator. Onboard Administrator also offers information on firmware versions for most components in the enclosure and can be used to update those components. USB. Onboard Administrator compares this information with the FRU EEPROMs on installed interconnect modules to check for electronic keying errors. For components in device bays in the front of each enclosure. Before power is provided to a server blade. A separate microcontroller controls power to the interconnect modules. which contains server information and embedded NIC information. Onboard Administrator provides virtual power control. Thermal Logic changes fan speed in different zones in the enclosure to minimize power consumption and maximize cooling efficiency. Onboard Administrator can remotely control the power state of all components in BladeSystem c-Class enclosures. and port mapping. Step 11 takes less than a minute for ProLiant server blades using the enclosure management Ethernet network. During step 11 discovers the identity of all installed components. the Onboard Administrator begins thermal management with Thermal Logic. • • The NIC and mezzanine option FRU information informs Onboard Administrator of the type of interconnects each server requires. and with a microcontroller to control options such as storage blades. and boot order control. Server blade control options include auto login to the iLO 2 web interface and remote server consoles. Server blade control options also include extensive server hardware information including BIOS and iLO 2 firmware versions. The number of installed mezzanine cards on each server increases the time in this step as each card is identified and verified. While Onboard Administrator is identifying components. NIC and option card port IDs. Controlling components Onboard Administrator uses embedded management interfaces to provide detailed information and health status for all bays in the enclosure including presence detection signals in each bay. The Thermal Logic feature in BladeSystem c-Class minimizes power consumption by the enclosure fan subsystem by reading temperature sensors across the entire enclosure. virtual power control. but also to every device or interconnect bay with a management processor. and one on each installed mezzanine option cards. After components are powered. Managing power and cooling The most important Onboard Administrator tasks are power control and thermal management. and Ethernet controllers. Then.

Interfaces Each c-Class enclosure has several external management interfaces that connect the user to Onboard Administrator. For interconnect modules.

USB ports on Onboard Administrator are used to connect external DVD drives to support the enclosure DVD feature. Access the Insight Display directly through the buttons on the display .or remotely through the Onboard Administrator GUI. The Insight Display configures key settings in the Onboard Administrator including the IP address of the Onboard Administrator. the enclosure link-up connector provides an enclosure service port that allows you to temporarily connect a laptop personal computer to any linked enclosure Onboard Administrator for local diagnostics and debugging. Remove the sticker to use the USB port with firmware version 2. All c-Class enclosures support two enclosure link connectors that provide private communications among enclosures linked with CAT5 cable. The KVM Module option for the c3000 Enclosure plugs into the rear bay adjacent to interconnect module 1 and provides a VGA connector and two more USB connectors for the c3000 enclosure. such as Virtual Connect Manager. The VGA connector attaches to an external VGA monitor and external USB keyboard and mouse to provide access to all the server video consoles or the Onboard Administrator CLI or Insight Display. An external USB hub (not included) must be used to connect a USB DVD drive at the same time as the KVM USB for keyboard and mouse for simultaneous Enclosure KVM and Enclosure DVD functionality. The Serial Port of the Onboard Administrator is available for local CLI access and Onboard Administrator flash recovery. Each c-Class enclosure includes an embedded Insight Display on the front of the enclosure which provides status and information on all the bays in a c-Class enclosure and diagnostic information if the Onboard Administrator detects a problem in the enclosure. Onboard Administrator user interfaces Four user interfaces to the Onboard Administrator allow control and provide information about the enclosure and installed components: • • • • Web interface GUI Scriptable CLI Insight Display Optional KVM Module Remote network access to the Onboard Administrator GUI and CLI is available through the management Ethernet port. In addition. you can order an optional internal DVD drive for the c3000 Enclosure. enabling the Enclosure KVM feature for the c7000 Enclosure.00 or later. The c-Class enclosure link-up port is also available as the service port for temporary local Ethernet access to the Onboard Administrators and devices in linked enclosures using either the GUI or CLI. This KVM module enables the enclosure KVM feature for the c3000 enclosure. Introduction 14 . In addition. The Active c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM provides the same Enclosure KVM capabilities as the optional c3000 KVM Module.iLO 2 communication for the server blades and any interconnect module using the c-Class embedded Ethernet management network. The Standby Onboard Administrator Module with KVM will only provide access to the Onboard Administrator CLI login which enables the logged in user to force a takeover. The USB port on the Onboard Administrator may have a sticker on the port that says reserved for future use. A serial port on the Onboard Administrator module provides full out-of-band CLI access to the Onboard Administrator and is used for Onboard Administrator firmware flash recovery. The new c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM adds a VGA connector to the c7000 Onboard Administrator.

the administrator can use single sign-on to log in to a single Onboard Administrator and use the web GUI to graphically view and manage the HP BladeSystem c-Class components in up to four linked enclosures. Use of the KVM Module to access server consoles is protected by server operating system username/passwords. followed by use of the Onboard Administrator GUI First Time Wizard or Onboard Administrator CLI to complete the reset of the enclosure settings. The account can be a local account where the password is stored on Onboard Administrator. Operator privileges allow full information access and control of permitted bays. Onboard Administrator authentication Security is maintained for all Onboard Administrator user interfaces through user authentication. Two-factor authentication allows even tighter security for the user management session to Onboard Administrator. LAN and SAN. An account with administrator privileges including Onboard Administrator bay permission can create or edit all user accounts on an enclosure. or an LDAP account. or user. User accounts are configured with specific device bay or interconnect bay permissions and one of three privilege levels: administrator. where Onboard Administrator contacts the defined LDAP server to check the user credentials. The Insight Display can be protected by an LCD PIN code or completely disabled. Then log into the Onboard Administrator GUI and use the First Time Setup Wizard Introduction 15 . Onboard Administrator allows single point access. For example. then the Onboard Administrator modules. and interconnect modules supporting and configured to use the Onboard Administrator internal management network will all automatically obtain DHCP addresses from the user DHCP server. all iLO 2. an IT administrator can automatically propagate management commands-such as changing the enclosure power mode-throughout the linked enclosures. you must configure each Onboard Administrator IP address and then all the individual device and interconnect module management IP addresses by using one of the following methods: • Recommended Practice . server blade iLO 2 management processors and many interconnect modules default to DHCP for their management IP address. User accounts created in Onboard Administrator define three user privilege levels and the component bays to which each level is granted access. Thus.The Optional KVM Module provides access to the Onboard Administrator CLI through the external VGA monitor and USB keyboard. Onboard Administrator requires the user to log in to the web GUI or CLI with an account and password. If you do not have a DHCP server for assigning IP addresses to management processors. The Onboard Administrator modules.configure each Onboard Administrator with a static IP address using the Insight Display. If the user has DHCP and connects the Onboard Administrator management port to the DHCP server. operator. The Optional KVM Module protects against changes to server power or enclosure DVD connection using the LCD PIN code. Running Onboard Administrator for the first time Setting up a c-Class enclosure using the Onboard Administrator is simplified by using the Insight Display first time installation wizard. Onboard Administrator stores the passwords for local user accounts and can be configured to use LDAP authentication for user group accounts. User privileges allow information access but no control capability. Role-based user accounts Onboard Administrator provides configurable user accounts that can provide complete isolation of multiple administrative roles such as server. Rather than requiring separate logins to multiple resources (once to each enclosure and/or once to every server management processor). and provides server video console access.

The way in which the tree view is rendered depends on several factors including user permissions. and device status. some options might not be visible in the tree view. device availability. Tree view The tree view aids in navigating through enclosure devices and functions for multiple enclosures in a hierarchal manner. You can navigate through an enclosure's devices and functions through either of these views. which displays a physical picture of the enclosure.

Differences between the two enclosures are evident in the graphical view navigation. an icon next to the category name can indicate a degraded status of the affected system. the status icon indicates a cumulative worst-case status of all the devices in the same category. One of the main purposes of the tree view is to allow navigation using categories based on the major systems within the enclosure. In the case of multiple components reporting status.The physical appearance of the tree view for the c3000 and c7000 are analogous. When a category is expanded (by clicking the white plus sign in the blue box to the left of the category). Individual device pages Navigating Onboard Administrator 67 .

Clicking the link for an individual device selects the device, opens the device detail page, and selects the device in the graphical view in the right frame of the GUI. Individual device pages contain detailed information about the selected device and any other functions related to that device.

Category summary pages Category summary pages contain summary information for each of the devices in that category. For example, clicking the Device Bays link opens a bay summary page. Each parent element in the tree works in this manner. When you click a category summary link, no devices are selected in the graphical view navigation.

System forms pages

Navigating Onboard Administrator 68

Some devices, particularly HP Onboard Administrator, can have links to various system forms pages listed beneath their main links in the left tree navigation view. Form pages contain input text boxes, radio buttons, and other HTML input element and are used to administer settings related to the device to which they belong. For example, you can use the HP Onboard Administrator system forms page to change IP address settings or update firmware. These forms are all linked under the HP Onboard Administrator parent element. When you click a system forms link, the device to which the form page belongs is selected in the graphical view. For example, clicking the Firmware Update link for the Active HP Onboard Administrator selects the Active HP Onboard Administrator device in the graphical view. Links to system forms do not display status icons.

Graphical view navigation
The second component of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator GUI navigation system is a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of two subcomponents: a front view and a rear view. The following image shows the graphical view of a typical c7000 enclosure.

Navigating Onboard Administrator 69

The following image shows the graphical view of a typical c3000 enclosure.

All functions and features for the graphical view navigation are the same for both the c3000 and the c7000 except where noted. Selecting a device To select a device, click the graphical representation of the device in the front or rear graphical view. When you select a device, its surrounding border changes from gray to light blue to indicate it is the currently selected device. Selecting a device in the graphical view selects the corresponding device in the left navigation tree view. Every time you select a device from any part of the navigation system, the rest of the navigation reflects that device selection event and updates accordingly. Status reporting The graphical view reports the status of every device in the enclosure. The status of each device is indicated on the device by a small status icon. No status icon appears for a device that is working properly and has an OK status. However, any other status codes appear as status icons on the device. The graphical view does not report the presence or absence of hard drives in the server blade or storage blade. Device security Although the front and rear graphical views are both affected by user permissions, security on the graphical view is handled differently from the left tree view. If the user does not have permission to access a device, a blank bay appears regardless of whether a device is present in that bay, and a padlock icon in the bay table cell appears, indicating that the bay is locked to the current user. The user cannot select a locked bay. When the user's mouse hovers over the locked bay, a message appears, indicating that the user does not have permission to access the device in that bay.

The Rack Topology tab shows a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of a front view and a rear view. When you mouse over a device in the graphical view, a window appears with information on that device. The graphical view provides status on each device in the enclosure and gives you the option of selecting an individual device for more detailed information. If there are multiple enclosures, some enclosures appear in the Rack Overview as all gray. To view the enclosure's contents and information, click Load Enclosure Information.

Topology modes
Onboard Administrator supports three topology modes which are determined by the selection made on the sign in screen prior to signing in. The three topology modes are:

Rack View 73

Local Mode—Used to manage a single enclosure when more than one enclosure can be selected. Onboard Administrator ignores all topology changes. This mode is useful when you do not want to change topology by adding linked enclosures. Linked Mode—Used to manage a single enclosure when no other enclosures are attached. You can use Linked Mode to allow the addition of new enclosures as they are added to the interlink. As long as no new enclosures are connected, Onboard Administrator appears to be in Local Mode. All topology changes that occur while signed in are displayed by Onboard Administrator. This mode provides an unrestricted view of enclosures connected to the interlink. Fixed Mode—Used to manage more than one, but not all enclosures. Only the topology changes affecting the current topology are displayed by Onboard Administrator. This mode is useful when monitoring a subset of the total enclosures connected to the interlink.

If the active mode is set for a single enclosure and one or more enclosures are connected,if you want to ensure that the additional enclosures are not visible in the enclosure topology, you must sign out and back in without selecting a linked enclosure.

Rack Topology tab
The Rack Topology tab shows a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of a front view and a rear view. When you mouse over a device in the graphical view, a window appears with information on that device. The graphical view provides status on each device in the enclosure and gives you the option of selecting an individual device for more detailed information. Selecting a device To select a device, click the graphical representation of the device in the front or rear graphical view. When you select a device, its surrounding border changes from gray to light blue to indicate it is the currently selected device. Selecting a device in the graphical view selects the corresponding device in the left navigation tree view. Every time you select a device from any part of the navigation system, the rest of the navigation reflects that device selection event and updates accordingly. Status reporting The graphical view reports the status of every device in the enclosure. The status of each device is indicated on the device by a small status icon. No status icon appears for a device that is working properly and has an OK status. However, any other status codes appear as status icons on the device. The graphical view does not report the presence or absence of hard drives in the server blade or storage blade. Device security Although the front and rear graphical views are both affected by user permissions, security on the graphical view is handled differently from the left tree view. If the user does not have permission to access a device, a blank bay appears regardless of whether a device is present in that bay, and a padlock icon in the bay table cell appears, indicating that the bay is locked to the current user. The user cannot select a locked bay. When the user's mouse hovers over the locked bay, a message appears, indicating that the user does not have permission to access the device in that bay.

interconnect bays. The privilege level approach of HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator to user permissions facilitates the maintenance of server blade bays. A user can have access to any combination of device bays. and typically contact information. This approach operates according to the following principles: • • Users are assigned privilege levels in User Management. Role-based user accounts Role-based user accounts on Onboard Administrator serve two purposes: to control the functions a user has access to on Onboard Administrator and to control permissions a temporary user account adopts on iLO when autologin is used. but no changes can be made within HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator. password. In this subcategory. This account is used for individuals who need to see the configuration of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator but do not need the ability to change settings. User roles and privilege levels Within the Users/Authentication category of HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator. and resetting default settings. select any of the sublevel menu items for specific settings. and Onboard Administrator bays. Access to a server blade by a user depends on the privilege level assigned to the user account. USER allows access to all information. you can create user accounts that individuals user to log in to the HP Onboard Administrator. OPERATOR allows access to all but configuration changes and user management. In cases where HP SIM is used. see HP SIM integration (on page 192). Bay permissions determine which bays the user is allowed to access. The Users/Authentication menu item cannot be selected and does not display overview information for user accounts or settings. Instead. If you select a user with Administrator ACL or OA permission. firmware updates. and have a uername. user management. Configuring the HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure and enclosure devices 179 . There are two major aspects of role-based user accounts on Onboard Administrator: bay permissions and a user privilege level. Onboard Administrator can integrate with HP SIM and use HP SIM users to facilitate a single login from HP SIM into Onboard Administrator. This account is used for individuals who might be required to periodically change configuration settings.Managing users Users/Authentication This section explains the levels of user rights recognized by the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator and provides detailed procedures to configure the management functionalities provided by the Onboard Administrator. the page will grey out and disable access to the blade and interconnect permissions and select them all. For more information. Bay permissions are selected during user account creation and allow access to specific device bays. Users can have one of three privilege levels: • • • ADMINISTRATOR allows access to all aspects of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator including configuration. you can access the Local Users subcategory.

Examples The following are examples of management scenarios in a c-Class environment and the user accounts that can be created to provide the appropriate level of security. the user is automatically logged into that iLO 2 using a temporary user account with their privilege level. operator. Administrators and operators can use the virtual buttons from Onboard Administrator to control power and the UID light on the interconnect module. across those bays. but the operator cannot manage users or any security settings. Users can view only status and information about the interconnect module. Scenario 2: A member of an organization needs to manage ports on two interconnect modules in bays 3 and 4. Edit—Select a user (only one can be selected) by selecting the checkbox next to the name of the user. Users have minimum read-only access to server information. A user's privilege level can be administrator. or Onboard Administrator bays. nor access any other bays. Using this single-sign on feature greatly simplifies managing multiple servers from the Onboard Administrator web GUI. A user with an administrator privilege level and with permission to the OA bays in the enclosure is automatically given full access to all bays and can perform any function on the enclosure or bays including managing user accounts and configuring the enclosure. To control the power or UID to the interconnect modules the user privilege would have to be operator. and all user levels have access to the Management Console link for interconnect bays to which they have permission. but the same privilege level. Permissions for interconnect modules are slightly different. User accounts configured to permit access to device bays can be created for server administrators. The Add Local User screen appears. This person needs to know which ports on the switch map to certain servers. but this person must not be able to manage any of the servers.

With the full-height server blade. it is considered device 1. Because full-height server blades take up the space of two half-height server blades. the four ports used on switches 1 and 2 would then be 2 and 10. Port mapping from these full-height server blades might initially appear to be different than the half-height server blades. Therefore. N equals the number of the blade in the enclosure and the port number for the switch. The server blades are mapped to the interconnect bays in the following manner.

The new iLO 2 obtains the IP address for that bay without further configuration needed. If a redundant Onboard Administrator is present: "SET IPCONFIG STATIC 2 <ip address> <netmask>". Allocate each IP address needed (up to 32) consecutive static IP addresses. Set iLO's IP address: "SET EBIPA SERVER <ip address> <netmask>. If a redundant Onboard Administrator is present: "SET OA NAME 2 <name>". Alternative 1 using EBIPA: Configuring each iLO 2 with an IP address using EBIPA provides a fixed network configuration including IP address. 9. To use the iLO 2 with a DHCP network. 8. Complete the remainder of the settings as required. This allows iLO to be addressed using TCP/IP so that the network settings can be reconfigured. The CLI User Guide indicates the enclosure defaults for each setting. If a redundant Onboard Administrator is present: "SET OA GATEWAY 2 <ip address>. If there is a gateway on the management network.that is based on the enclosure bay where the server is installed. 7. Configure OA1 IP address as static or DHCP. To configure each iLO 2 for static IP addresses there are several alternatives. Select whether to use either the OA1/OA2 IP address or Enclosure IP address. Using the serial connection 206 . or c3000 KVM Module option. connect the Onboard Administrator management port to a network with a DHCP server and Onboard Administrator and all iLO 2 management processors and supporting interconnect modules such as Virtual Connect obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server. 11. set the iLO's gateway to the IP address: SET EBIPA SERVER GATEWAY <ip address>. Set Onboard Administrator gateway: "SET OA GATEWAY 1 <ip address>. Set Onboard Administrator name: "SET OA NAME 1 <name>". Start EBIPA FOR iLO: "ENABLE EBIPA SERVER". Example for static: "SET IPCONFIG STATIC 1 <ipaddress><netmask>" 6.

This resets the iLO network settings to the configured values. Repeat these steps for each iLO 2. Application of the RIBCL script resets the iLO network settings to the configured values. Alternative 4 using iLO 2 RIBCL scripts: Create a unique RIBCL xml script to configure the iLO 2 network settings to the desired values for each iLO 2. Select apply and the iLO 2 has been configured for a static IP address. Reboot each server and stop POST during iLO 2 ROM initialization.126. instead of configuring the RIBCL script with the unique default iLO 2 username/password. turn off the EBIPA setting for the servers. Reboot the server. Login to the OA CLI with an account having administrator privilege and bay permissions to the corresponding iLO 2. Repeat these steps for each iLO 2. Copy these scripts to an http. ftp or tftp server network path to the script file (example hponcfg 2 http://10. turn off the EBIPA setting for the servers. ftp or tftp server that can be accessed by the Onboard Administrator. Alternative 5 using the iLO 2 BIOS ROM during server POST: Connect each server to a KVM. Change iLO 2 to DHCP disabled and enter the desired IP address. Use iLO 2 SMASH/CLP interface to set the iLO 2 to the desired IP address subnet mask and gateway. When all iLOs in the enclosure have static IP addresses configured. Using Onboard Administrator to perform the hponcfg command uses single-sign-on to the selected iLO 2.
