Integrated Lights-Out 2 Supported Features

Cisco 7800 Series MCS HP servers support the following Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO 2) features:

  • Graceful power shutdown
  • Cold boot

Other iLO 2 features are not supported by Cisco. Unified Communications applications are not integrated with iLO 2 firmware, software, licensing, or user interfaces.

iLO 2 Graceful Power Shutdown

Procedure
    Step 1   Select the System Status tab.
    Step 2   On the Status Summary page, select the Momentary Press button.
    Step 3   When prompted, confirm the Momentary Press request.

    iLO 2 Cold Boot


    Note


    Because the OS does not have an opportunity to shut down, a cold boot may corrupt the file system. Perform a cold boot only if a graceful power shutdown fails to return system control to the administrator.


    Procedure
      Step 1   Select the Power Management tab.
      Step 2   On the Server Power Controls page, select the Cold Boot button.
      Step 3   When prompted, confirm the Cold Boot request.

      Enable Integrated Lights-Out 2

      In Cisco 7800 Series MCS HP servers, the iLO 2 hardware is embedded in the motherboard.

      For information about which Cisco 7800 Series MCS HP servers ship with iLO 2 software and a license, see Cisco 7800 Series Media Convergence Servers Service Processor Compatibility. If your Cisco 7800 Series MCS HP server does not ship with iLO 2 software and a license, you must order the software and a license directly from HP. Contact your HP account team for assistance.

        Integrated Lights-Out 2 Caveats

        When you run the iLO 2 service processor, note the following:

        • iLO 2 is licensed and you require a key for remote access to the console. You can access the GUI without a key.
        • You must use Internet Explorer (Windows only) for remote access to iLO 2.
        • If iLO 2 locks due to an abrupt disconnect and is not available, remove power from the server and then power on the server to restore operation.
        • You lose connectivity during a firmware upgrade.
