This section explains how to configure and use Integrated Lights Out (iLO) on HPE Apollo 4200 Gen10 nodes.
Access to the iLO port on a public LAN can have serious security implications because it can grant anyone with credentials direct access to your server’s hardware and console. Follow security best practices when implementing iLO access.
To configure the iLO port, you must have root access to the client-facing network through SSH. For example, you can use the
sudo -s command.
How the iLO Port Works
Your node provides iLO support for out-of-band maintenance access even when the node is plugged in but powered off. The following diagram shows the location of the iLO port.
Your nodes receive DHCP address assignments by default. When you configure a node’s iLO port, you can access the node by using the IP address (that the DHCP server assigns to the node) and a web browser that supports HTML5, Java, or .NET.
We strongly recommend separating your iLO access network from your client-facing network.
To access iLO configuration from the BIOS System Utilities menu, press F9. The default iLO username is
Administrator. The password is printed on top of your node chassis.
The IMPI username and password are unrelated to your Qumulo administrative credentials.
To configure the iLO port, you must use
ipmitool. For more information, see the following HPE resources:
