Remote Console already in use

I am using RDP with BL20p servers and 2 of the servers let me access the web page of the lights out but when I goto console instead of letting me log in again, (p.s. is it normal to have to do it again?) it says that the "requested service is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client"

Re: Remote Console already in use

I notice that if you bring up remote console, then exit remote console, and bring back up remote console again, you may get this error. A work around for me is to reset iLO by clicking on the apply button in the network settings page.

Your certificate may be getting messed up some how, try closing the browser and logging back in and see if that helps.

Re: Remote Console already in use

I must admit it seems to have righted itself now, the blade servers in question have been shutdown a couple of times. I have no real solution I'm afraid.

Re: Remote Console already in use

I had a similar situation on a ML350 G3 RILOE II. The firmware was already at 1.11 and I could log into the web page successfully. All functions worked except the Remote Console. It would bring up a black screen with the "...different client." message. Reapplying the firmware corrected the issue.

Re: Remote Console already in use

Clicking Apply on the Network Settings page worked as a temporary fix but I'd like to see a solution from hp. I'm running several different servers (BL, DL, ML) and all have iLO firmware 1.50. Thanks for the work around.

Re: Remote Console already in use

it seems that the fw 1.55 does fix this issue with Remote Console hung (wer're running beta 1.55 for two monhts now without trouble on multiple servers)

Re: Remote Console already in use

I have had the same problem. I shutdown the server and disconnected the power to him; in blade i shudown the server and retired them of bahia. the best solution than has worked to me is reported by bwc in this pagina "To reset iLO by clicking on the apply button in the network settings page".

Re: Remote Console already in use

Look for the next release of the F/W 1.60 later this month. That has a specific fix for this problem.

Re: Remote Console already in use

I'm using the shared network iloe and I'm getting "Requested service is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client."
It's a dl380G4 and the ILOE with Firmware 1.60
