Re: TIP: iLO remcons doesn't connect consistently

One thing to realize is that iLO is ON even if the server is powered off.
However, when you pull the power plug on the server, it will remove power to

This I realized ... the problem was that this was occuring just after plugging it in, before I'd even had a chance to load up the web page, or connect via SSH ... and I'm on a closed network right now, with me the only one with either web or ssh access to the server, so it isn't as if someone else took control on me ...

Is there a way of issuing a 'reboot' from the ssh interface? I know I can go in through the web and just click apply in the network settings screen, but ...

Also, iLO only allows a single REMCONS session at a time. If you have one session running, you won't be able to start another one until the first one is closed.

Similar to above ... any way of issuing a 'disconnect' from the ssh login? Or does it require that setting in Network Connections for this?

Just to document this, in case others hit the situation ...

The one 'issue' that I've had so far with the new DL360 G4p was that when
I tried to enabled 'remcons' from an ssh connection into iLO, it wouldn't
always give me a console ... if I unplugged the server from the wall, and
re-plugged it in and tried then, it worked fine .. if I unplugged it yet
again and plugged it back in again, it *might* work, it might now ...

After some searching, I found something that *sounded* similar on HPs
forums, where the suggested fix was to go through the web interface, under
Network Settings, and make sure you disable the WINS stuff ...

*So* far, each time I've unplugged/plugged it back in again, I've been
able to successfully get a remcons through iLO ... going to try it a few
more times before I ship it out, but *so far* things seem to be good ...
