Question about HP Integrity rx4640 Server

ILO light constant amber - cannot connect to iLO via LAN or serial connection

We lost the MP password to our rx4640 server.
I tried to reset it, held in the MP reset button for 4 seconds like the manual said, but now the amber light next to the reset button is constantly on and I cannot connect at all with either serial or LAN cables.
Any suggestions on what I did and how to fix it? Thanks.

ILO LAN ip address reseting


Yes you can reset the IP Address of the iLo when the server is up. Log onto the iLo itself as an administrative user and select administration --> Network.
This will reboot the iLo itself, but the server will be unnaffected.Later you can check from IP-Details.com to see your IP address has been changed

How to reset administrator password on windows server 2012 raid server? My computer is HP HP ProLiant ML110 G5 with raid 10. I have try to use Chntpw to reset the lost password, but it cannot detect my...


Which operating system ??
The Hewlett Packard ILO (Integrated Lights Out) tool lets a network administrator connect to a remote Windows Server system.
This process enables the administrator to perform troubleshooting and problem fixing as if the server were connected locally.
If the password of the account used for connectivity becomes corrupt, it can be reset from within the Windows interface.

Log on to a Windows computer that has a connection to the HP ILO.
Click the "Start" button. In the "Search" box, type "lusrmgr.msc."
Press "Enter" to open the User Management console.
Double-click "Local Users and Groups."
Click "Users."
Scroll down to the HP ILO user account.
Right-click on it. From the drop-down list, click "Set Password."
Type in a new password.
Click "OK."

Retrieving administrator in xp
Recover the lost administrators password in Windows XP
Slightly more work needed if you lose or forget the Windows XP
administrator password.
1.First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re starting the computer and
pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up.
2.Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run.
In the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes
I have just used quotes to differentiate what you have to type.
3.You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the
administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
4.Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset
Password.
5.You will need to add a new password in the New password and the
Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
All done, you have recovered the lost administrators password!

On one of our HP DL360 G5 systems every time after soft reboot the server cannot be booted back. This is 100% reproducible also with Cold boot. Can someone help us find what internal component is...


The simplest way is to check Insight Manager. Type localhost:2301 on a web browser locally. Or, servername:2301 for remote access. You need local Administrator password.
Insight is only available if it was set up with a Smart Start disk. It's that pack that comes with all HP servers, but can be downloaded as well. Best practice is always install.


Don' know what IML is, and ILO has no baring to problems.

There is Insight Manager link on specs.

Hello,

This is more a configuration error. Depending on how you have your DHCP setup, you may need to adjust it's setting. No mention of what os you are using but if you set your DHCP to give IP addresses only to the LAN, set the ISP NIC address to receive its ip from the ISP provider, you should be able to get Internet access to your server and the LAN.

If you have done so, use the server os to setup your Internet connection. Answer a few questions about how you connect to the Net and the os will do most of the configuration for you.

Good Luck

Hi i have many hp dl380 g4 and i did not work with ilo before , when i tray to access web ilo aksed me for user login and password and i do not know it ? what is the default and who i can reset it


There is no "default". Each is unique from the factory and is printed on a tag hanging from the front of the server when it is delivered. You will need to contact HP for help with this.

HP Proliant ML350 G5 wont boot ,just spining.


The G5 Series is fairly new, if you're within warranty, call 1800-okCompaq.

Could be a bad cable, a bad monitor, or bad computer hardware. Any display at all or any beep codes?

On the back, the ml350 G5 will likely have an additional Network interface jack-- this may be labeled ILO. The ILO network connect allows you to use another PC on the same network to access this system (like a remote control via VNC or RDP) even if it won't power up--literally. Inside the ILO page, (you'll need the IP address of the ILO, the default account is administrator, and the default password is listed ona paper tag attached in the rear or on a sticker. If you can get into ILO via web browser: https://ipddress of ilo, you can check the Integrated log, which can shed some light on any failures.
