ILO F8 option not available

when some of our servers boot the option to press F8 is not available.

Any known reason for this?

DL380G3 ILO on board.

Thanks

iLO is not responding. Try removing power for a few seconds, then plug the power cable back in.

Re: ILO F8 option not available

The iLO option ROM is a program that runs on the host processor and communicates to the iLO management processor. If the iLO option ROM is unable to communicate (for numerous possible reasons), the error message is presented by the option ROM.

If the option ROM presents an error message like this, there is probably a problem with the running firmware image. Cycling the system by removing power causes the firmware to reboot.
