Default DLG360 ILO Port

Hello -

Looking for some feedback from this Forum regarding the ILO Port on the DLG360's. I know Avaya doesn't "Officially" support this port but they have a You Tube Video talking about how they use them in their labs. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=domrAka9BNI )

I was wondering who on here is using it to manage the Server Hardware and have some specific questions regarding how you use it plus any feedback/advice.

1 - Do you have it alert you on conditions that need attention - Alert via Email, SMS Text, Pager? Does it do this straight out of the ILO port or does it need another software package to do this?

2 - Did you have to get a license from HP as indicated in the video? Or does some of the basic functionality work without it?

3 - How do you like the functionality of the ILO Port?

4 - What other features do you use on the ILO Port?

I have read quite a bit about the ILO port and it looks like a good fit for proactive monitoring, but it's not clear on how specific parts of that feature works and I am really looking for a 1,000' overview and then throw some technical questions someone's way.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

James

Default DLG360 ILO Port

Hi James,
I check your query and hope below answers help you.
- Do you have it alert you on conditions that need attention - Alert via Email, SMS Text, Pager? Does it do this straight out of the ILO port or does it need another software package to do this?
Yes, It can provide the alert through SNMP.
iLO supports Inventory and Configuration, Health Status, SNMP Alerting, Pre-Failure Alerting, Redundancy Status and Alerting, and SNMP Data Collection.
All the errors and alerts only for Hardware Level like Fan Failure, Power Failure etc.


2 - Did you have to get a license from HP as indicated in the video? Or does some of the basic functionality work without it?
You can work without license but i afraid the it will give you limited/trial functionality.
Though you can get the license from HP.

3 - How do you like the functionality of the ILO Port?
I am a Implementation & Support Engineer, iLO port help me a lot in case of issue
which is related to server. It will open Console view of server and we can see whats going on. And we can also check what is the health of the hardware.


4 - What other features do you use on the ILO Port?
There are no. of feature's you can do with iLO.
You can monitor the hardware, Fan's ,Power to server, NIC status etc.You can refer to manual of DL360 G7 HP.

Thank you sumit007 -

One follow up question if you don't mind - So are you saying the ILO port itself spits out the information, I don't need to think about standing up some other monitoring server/software for the ILO port?

I get the whole SNMP part, we can point that to our NMS, but I just want to make sure I am not having to budget some other server with this.

Thanks,

James

James,
Yes iLO port gives lot of information about the Server but they are limited means mostly on hardware basis and yes there is no need for monitoring this port. This is just use for hardware specific tasks.
