What happened? Why doesn’t my iLo have an IP Address? The blade inserted has the correct profile but the iLo cannot obtain an IP address. I cannot start a remote session to the iLo….
What? What about configuration of the iLo IP Address?
HP iLo uses DHCP to obtain an IP address.
The Onboard Administrator configures this parameter. The iLos have DHCP enabled and OA distributes addresses. Feature is called Enclosure Bay IP Addressing or EBIPA.
I was scratching my head, as it has been a while since I had to configure a new blade with the iLo.
I forget to run the full configuration for the iLo in the Onboard Administrator.
Verify the blade is functional powered on and recognized in the and the chassis isn’t throwing any errors.
Go into the OA.
Locate the Menu “First Time Setup Wizard >>> EBIPA section”
- Make sure the enable box is checked for the new blade
- Notice how the blade has not obtained an IP address yet, pending set of feature and reboot
Once the blade has rebooted or ILo has rebooted it will have an IP address and you will be able to remotely console into the blade.
Remember to patch the latest firmware for the blade. Download the full ISO image of the SPP from HP’s site and boot from that ISO.
