Having same problem, DL160G5 with ILO firmware 3.06.

After digging deeper, I noticed that:

1) "ipmitool bmc reset" command makes something wrong to server (FAN/Temp control), ILO reporting that FAN6 doesn't work, also no more CPU temp monitoring. Server's temp is raising noticeable (up to 40'C rear pci), so i would _avoid_ using "reset cold" command, unless you reboot server asap after ILO is back online.

2) There were reports that "bmp reset cold" does something to P400 controller -- it reports disk errors (overheat?)

3) ILO does NOT stop responding in warm/hot room. Weird, but when I pulled server out of server room ILO worked just fine for three days.
Temperature at server room is ~15'C daytime / ~10..12'C nightly, and ILO stops responding exactly at night!

4)I was checking for new ILO firmware and checked Dl160G_6_ page, it has ILO fw ver, 4.03, check Fixes tab:
"...Resolved an issue where very cold operating temperatures could cause Lights-Out 100 to become unresponsive...".

I think we _may_ have very same issue with G5.

Wonder when HP will fix this issue.
