Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 maybeimaleo (MIS) (OP) 20 Dec 11 14:45 Dl360 G7 with iLo card. We have the ip addr in but are unable to ping the address.We've verified the switchport is not in the wrong vlan.We've verified that the ip used is unique.We've updated the firmware on the iLO.What else could be the problem? RE: Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 DrB0b (IS/IT--Management) 20 Dec 11 15:25 Ill ask the potentially "unintelligent" question.... Are you sure that PING is enabled on the server? Or on the device you are pinging from? "You don't know what you got, till its gone..80's hair band Cinderella or ode to data backups???" RE: Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 maybeimaleo (MIS) (OP) 20 Dec 11 15:42 Yes and Yes. We can ping the server.

RE: Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 maybeimaleo (MIS) (OP) 21 Dec 11 09:53 Nope, can't connect to it that way either. :( RE: Can't Ping iLO in DL360 G7 blister911 (MIS) 21 Dec 11 12:11 Okay, when I run into issues like this I usually revert to checking the basics. Then, work towards the more complicated.1. Check the cable connecting the iLO to the switch. Confirm it's good. We have a cable scanner, but you may have to try other methods. 2. Check the switch port for errors3. Verify the network configuration on the switchport and iLO a. force speed to 100MB on both sides (unless things have changed that's all the iLO can do; auto negotiate is less preferred) b. ip address is correct for the vlan c. subnet mask is correct d. gateway address is correct4. If the iLO is plugged into a Gig switch, try a 10/100 if you have one with an available port. Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
